Friday 08 Nov 2013: Colloquium: Flowers, Fruits and Gyroids: Optics of self-assembled photonic materials.
Dr. Silvia Vignolini - University of Cambridge
Newman Red 12:00-13:00
In this talk the optical properties of complex optical materials obtained by self assembly will be revised.
Starting from the description of structural colour in plants, to fully three dimensional system, I will revise how inspiration form nature can guide the fabrication of artificial materials interesting optical properties.
