The unique functionalities of nanoscale structures in the natural world are an inspiration to the development of new nano-manufacturing techniques. For example, the cornea of the moth's eye features a sub-wavelength natural antireflective architecture. To date, almost all optical research into moth eye structures has been focused on their antireflective properties. No studies of inverse polarization phenomena at the Brewster angle have been reported, especially in biomimetic structures. For the… CONTINUE READING
