Within colors of bees and butterflies, an optical engineer's dream is realized

Rersearchers used used high-intensity X-rays to investigate color-producing nanostructures within hair-like structures that cover some species of butterflies, weevils and beetles, bees, and spiders and tarantulas. They found that the architecture of these nanostructures are identical to chemical polymers engineered by chemists and materials scientists.
