Optical fingerprint imaging device

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #4925300.

Apparatus suitable for imaging fingerprints directly from a finger in contact with a transparent surface of a lens is described. The conical nature of the contact surface affords the opportunity for a single such surface to accommodate a wide range of finger sizes. The front surface of the lens is conical, and a light source is provided for illuminating the finger, with ridges of the fingerprint being imaged and light illuminating the papillary valleys being refracted away from the imaging means.
