Title: System for authenticating an additively manufactured object

Abstract

A method for authenticating an additively manufactured (AM) object is disclosed herein. A computing device obtains a measurement that is indicative of a stochastic distribution of dopant incorporated into the AM object. The computing device generates authentication data for the AM object based upon the measurement, and authenticates the AM object based upon the authentication data.
