11 March 2013 Replica of the structural color for Papilio blumei butterfly
Author Affiliations +
Although the physics of structural color has been investigated, it remains a challenge to create artificial replicas of the natural photonic crystal structure. The concave multilayer replica of Papilio blumei butterflies is successfully fabricated by the following three main steps: self assembly of polystyrene spheres, deposition using an electron-beam gun, and inductively coupled plasma etching. The green iridescence of the wings of P. blumei is successfully reproduced.
