Plants are remarkable optofluidic devices that function almost exclusively through the interaction of two fluids (water and air) and optics (sunlight) . We will describe some of the optofluidic mechanisms that have evolved in plants and discuss implications for optofluidic devices for solar harvesting.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
