Biomimicry PhD graduate makes structural color breakthrough

This Phys.org article details the new structural color research conducted by biomimicry doctoral candidate Bor-Kai Hsiung (sponsored by paint maker Sherwin-Williams Co.). Hsiung’s research focused on the nanostructure of blue tarantula hair, opening new knowledge around consistent color in the long-range photonic structure that is not iridescent. And congratulations are in order for this milestone—the tarantula research was part of the work Hsiung did to become one of the first to graduate from University of Akron’s Biomimicry PhD program.
