Butterfly Spotting Gear Through Thermal Imaging
One of the best examples of structural color can see while viewing the monarch butterfly wings. Butterfly wings have nanostructured chitin that refracts and reflects light, giving off a captivating iridescent color.
Now scientists are adding carbon nanotubes to their sides to convert these nanostructures into an infrared/thermal imaging sensor (learn more about IR imaging at http://thermalcameras.guide).
As of right now, thermal imaging … Read More
