ZnO single butterfly wing scales: synthesis and spatial optical anisotropy

Author affiliations

Abstract

We synthesize ZnO butterfly single wing scales (SWSs) directly templated from original individual SWSs. A 20° departure of the light incidence may drastically reduce the reflectance intensity by ten times. This work helps clarify the mechanism in butterfly replica optical properties, which are hotly being discussed at present.
