Composed of alternating layers of mineral crystal tablets and organic films, nacre is renowned for its strength, toughness and optical iridescence. Using polymer mediated calcite thin film growth and layer-by-layer coating of polyelectrolytes to deposit porous organic films, we are able to achieve a nacre-like material which include mineral bridges leading to crystalline continuity. These multilayers promise interesting optical and mechanical properties.
