Bio-inspired Photonics

Photonic Structures in Nature and Bio-mimetic Materials

Nature’s most vivid colours rely on ordered, quasi-ordered, and disordered structures with lattice constants or scattering elements whose sizes are on the order of the wavelength of visible radiation.

Knowledge of the interplay between the morphology, composition, and optical appearance of biological photonic systems can provide inspiration for novel artificial photonic materials.
