Structural Colors in Nature and Butterfly-Wing Modeling

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Periodic structures, such as those found in photonic crystals, can generate iridescent colors. They allow some objects in nature, including opals, to display gleaming colors, even in the absence of pigment. Electromagnetic theory allows the phenomenon to be investigated through modeling.
