Liquid-immune structural colors with angle-independence inspired from hollow melanosomes

Abstract

In this work, hollow polydopamine (PDA) amorphous colloidal structures with liquid-immune and angle-independent structural colors have been successfully fabricated. Owing to the high refractive index contrast derived from hollow PDA, and its light-absorbing nature, the as-prepared colloidal materials demonstrate brilliant structural colors even in liquid environments.
