Barcode is used, where the reflectivity differences of the surface is exploited, or it will be grid structures or film antennas used to exploit the Resonanzfreguenz in a resonant circuit.
  • From the AU 488 652 Security documents are known in which security features can be tested by means of transmitted light. Between plastic sheets an optically variable security element is arranged, which can be viewed through a transparent window in the overlying cover sheet. It is disadvantageous in particular that the attached security features are only visible to the naked eye in the transmitted light process, and that the material properties of the document are greatly changed.
  • It is also the introduction of only a transparent window in banknotes known as a security feature (Australian banknotes).
  • In the DE 43 34 847 A1 is described a document of value with window in which the carrier is subsequently provided with a window-like opening, which is closed with a transparent cover, wherein the cover is provided in this area of the window with additional security features. The preparation of the subsequent breakthrough of the carrier of the security to a window and the cover with a transparent cover, which in turn is partially provided with a security feature, is technologically complex and has an increase in the thickness of the security result. The requirement that areas of the window must remain transparent in order to be able to recognize the security features in the transmitted light method with the naked eye restricts the possibilities of concealed security features. These are just as in the known window threads in banknotes to elements, which are used in themselves only as a security element, but do not take on any other function. The known windows, taken alone, can also include security features.
  • The authentication the known security features usually requires the use of special devices, methods and in particular of external ones Testing equipment such as Magnifying glasses for checking Micro-typefaces, lenticular for verification of hidden, graphic Elements, UV lamps for visualizing fluorescence, or in the transmitted light method, the optical recognizability of the security feature.
  • In the DE 36 09 090 A1 is a security with embedded embedded security thread, which is visually verifiable without technical aids. The security thread is made of a transparent material. On a surface a grid of cylindrical lenses is imprinted. On the opposite surface of the film of the thread directly a printed image is applied. The printed image is designed taking into account the optical properties of the cylindrical lenses. By appropriate design of the printed image so that information can be introduced, which are visible only from certain angles.
  • adversely is that directly is arranged under the thread of paper, so that the security feature only in reflection and not in transmission can be considered. The safety is only in the thread. The thread is a common one Safety element.
  • Out DE 26 47 325 B1 For example, an identity card is known which contains a hologram on both the front and the back, each of which can be checked by an external optical device.
  • Out EP 0 256 176 A1 For example, a security document is known in which, for example, a signature is encrypted by the fact that the signature on two different slides is divided into small pieces by photographic methods. When the two sheets are overlaid, they complement each other to the signature, which can be used to verify the authenticity of the document.
  • Of the Invention is based on the object, a generic safety and / or value document as well as a method of verification for this, which increases the security against counterfeiting and the simplified test Document authenticity are guaranteed without external aids.
  • The solution This object is apparent from the features of the claim 1 and of claim 12. By the provision of security features and verification means such as detectors for verifying the security features or in a document is achieved that no external aids to check the Authenticity of the document needed become. It can be the authenticity for example, on a banknote security features by, for example, one or more transparent windows be checked on the same banknote. The combination of security features and a verification system raised on the same banknote their forgery security, because the verification system is also a security feature can be configured. To check the Authenticity can be Show and back the banknote to be used. By suitable folding of the banknote or any other document required by law of the invention, a security feature will be checked, by using the security feature with the verification system, e.g. B. Window, brought into effect.
  • It can with the verification element applied to the value document security features introduced at various points in the document.

  • For many verification effects, it is desirable to easily and quickly bring two different types of verification elements across the security feature. This often facilitates the perception of a change in the case of movement or color shift effects. It facilitates verification in cases where rotation of the verification element relative to the security feature is required. Such a rotation would be at a single verification window 2 very impractical. To solve these problems, the distribution of the verification window will be used 2 into two adjacent analyzer areas ( 2 . 2a to 2d ) or the arrangement of two adjacent windows 2 ( 3 ) proposed with different verification elements.
  • In the 2c is an embodiment of a window according to the invention 2 shown as a verification element, on the banknote 1 as verification elements at least two clear analyzer areas 5 . 6 side by side as a window 2 are arranged. The analyzer areas 5 . 6 are preferably designed as holographic prisms, if possible as superchromatic prisms, for a so-called chromastereoscopic image. Preferably, the prisms are formed as gradient index prisms in the form of thin film materials.
  • An embodiment according to 2a , which is not the subject of the invention, provides that the at least two adjacent clear analyzer areas 5 . 6 in a window 2 are designed as a so-called "Vectrograph". A "Vectograph" consists of two superimposed laminated polyvinyl alcohol films that form linear polarizing filters when printed with iodide inks. The two films are oriented such that the front surface forms a vertical polarization upon contact with the iodide color and a horizontal polarization upon contact with the iodide color (FIG. 2a . 2 B ). On the front sheet is selected with iodide color a selected first pattern, eg. For example, a square 10 ( 2a . 2 B ), and on the back a selected second pattern, e.g. B. a star 11 ( 2a . 2 B ), printed. Looking at the superimposed films with a linear analyzer (window 2 , Area 5 of the 2a . 2 B ) appears when the analyzer is oriented horizontally 5 the first pattern (square 10 ) and with a vertical orientation of the analyzer 6 the second pattern (star 11 ). Likewise, color changes can be realized.
  • A shared in this way verification window 2 with analyzer areas 5 . 6 spares the rotation of the window 2 , the window 2 will only be moved.
  • Similarly shaped areas 5 . 6 can be designed to realize a contrast envelope between transmissive and impermeable. Such structures can be realized by applying to a linearly polarizing film 8th ( 2d ) so-called "lambda-half" areas 9 (Phase plates with a phase shift of 180 ° between ordinary and extraordinary beam), for example, by suitably oriented film materials of the correct thickness can be applied ( 2d ). In these areas, the polarization direction is rotated by 90 °. This effect is particularly impressive with area filling patterns. Similarly shaped structures are used to realize a clear color change on the principle of the so-called "color shutter".
  • In another not belonging to the invention embodiment of the / the verification elements in the window 2 the banknote 1 are interference / color filters, generally transparent diffraction structures, multilayer systems used.
  • The interference / color filters are formed in or on a preferably transparent foil material or consist of this material. The filters are on, for example, a banknote 1 in the area 2 in combination with a colored graphic element in the area 3 integrated. By suitable agreement Defile the areas 2 . 3 the banknote 1 is a certain spectral range in the graphical element, eg. As typeface, by the area 2 hidden or transmitted, so that a color impression deviating from the original color arises.
  • When Interference / color filters can both colored, transparent materials as well as transparent materials with z. As evaporated / sputtered, printed colors are used.
  • In a further embodiment, which is not the subject of the invention, at least two clear analyzer areas 5 . 6 as shown in the 2 and 3 arranged side by side. These areas 5 . 6 are formed as at least two color filters for viewing so-called anaglyphs (stereo images), with the anaglyphs on the area 3 the banknote 1 are located. By suitable overlapping of the areas 5 . 6 and 3 at a certain distance from each other a stereo impression is created.
  • All windows can be in any shape, preferably in a form that best corresponds to the type of the selected verification element, as well as thread-like or as in the 5 shown is triangular, be formed.
  • The windows can be placed anywhere on the document, as well as on a corner of the document, as in the 5 shown by way of example only have to fulfill the condition that security features and verification elements for verifying the security feature can be brought into operative connection with one another, for example by folding, twisting, superimposing one or more documents. The superimposing can be done in direct contact or, in some cases, at a distance between the security feature and the verification element.
