Informal Materials RIG seminar

Cephalopods (squid, octopuses, and cuttlefish) are known as the chameleons of the sea – they can alter their skin’s coloration, patterning, and texture to blend into the surrounding environment. These remarkable capabilities are enabled by the unique morphology of cephalopod skin, as well as by its constituent proteins and nanoscale structures. I will discuss our work on new types of photonic and protonic devices fabricated from cephalopod-derived materials. Our findings may hold implications not only for the next generation of stealth and bioelectronics technologies, but also for gaining insight into the mechanisms that underpin cephalopods’ camouflage abilities.
