Default Artificial Butterfly: Wing Scales Provide Template For Complex Photonic Structures



[Only registered users see links. ]

By replicating the complex micron- and nanometer-scale photonic structures that help give butterfly wings their color, researchers have demonstrated a new technique that uses biotemplates for fabricating nanoscale structures that could serve as optical waveguides, optical splitters and other building blocks of photonic integrated circuits.
