Bio-Inspired Structural Colors Produced via Self-Assembly of Synthetic Melanin Nanoparticles.

Abstract

Structural colors arising from interactions of light with submicron scale periodic structures have been found in many species across all taxa, serving multiple biological functions including sexual signaling, camouflage, and aposematism. Directly inspired by the extensive use of self-assembled melanosomes to produce colors in avian feathers, we set out to… (More)
