Description
  • Tropical Morpho butterflies are known for their bright blue iridescent colors, formed from an array of scales on the dorsal side of their wings. We present here an experimental study of the wing's spectral response by using multispectral, angle resolved analysis of the wing nanostructure in response to liquids of different indices of refraction and show sensitivity to changes in refractive index o... read more
