Abstract

Some animal colors are produced by quasi-periodic structures with submicron features. We discuss the application of FDTD method to study the reflection characteristics of a tree like microstructure from butterfly wing-scales, a photonic crystal structure from peacock feathers and a three-dimensional bumpy structure from the skin of transparent animals.
