Scalable, Ultra-resistant Structural Colors Based on Network Metamaterials

A team that includes scientists from the Laboratory for Nanometallurgy is the first to use materials with a network-like structure to create a full spectrum of intense colours. The principle has long existed in nature: for example, in the colourful plumage of a particular species of bird in South America. Read more
