Color in nature is everywhere: animals and plants develop structures on sub-micron scale to manipulate light and to obtain brilliant and iridescent colors. This structural coloration arises from various mechanisms, including multilayered materials, crystalline inclusions and surface diffraction gratings. In this talk Dr Vignolini will describe examples of photonic structures in nature and how those concepts can be easily implemented for general photonic applications.

The talk is free for CUPS members, £2 for non-members, and will be followed by a wine reception.
