infrared mapping

[¦in·frə¦red ′map·iŋ]
(mapping)
Mapping in which a sensitive infrared detector is mounted on an infrared scanner, and the resulting thermal image is translated into varying shades of gray on photographic film, to give a line-pattern image much like that seen on a television screen.

Despite the phone's sophisticated 3D infrared mapping of its owner's face and AI-driven modeling, the researchers say they were able to achieve that spoofing with a relatively basic mask: little more than a sculpted silicone nose, some two-dimensional eyes and lips printed on paper, all mounted on a 3D-printed plastic frame made from a digital scan of the would-be victim's face.
