Abstract
Fireflies light up our warm summer evenings. There is more physics behind these little animals than any one of us could imagine. We analyze from a physical point of view one structure found on the firefly lantern, the one which best improves light extraction. Moreover, simulations will be done to show why this specific structure may be more effective than one designed by humans.
