  • Bright-white beetle scales optimise multiple scattering of light 

    Burresi, M; Cortese, L; Pattelli, L; Kolle, M; Vukusic, P; Wiersma, DS; Steiner, U; Vignolini, S (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
    Whiteness arises from diffuse and broadband reflection of light typically achieved through optical scattering in randomly structured media. In contrast to structural colour due to coherent scattering, white appearance ...

  • Brillouin scattering study on the single-crystal elastic properties of natrolite and analcime zeolites 

    Sanchez-Valle, Carmen; Sinogeikin, Stanislav V.; Lethbridge, Zoe A. D.; Walton, Richard I.; Smith, Christopher W.; Evans, Kenneth E.; Bass, Jay D. (American Institute of Physics, 2005)
    The Brillouin light-scattering technique was used to investigate the single-crystal elastic properties of two aluminosilicate zeolites, natrolite (NAT) and analcime (ANA), at ambient conditions. An inversion of the acoustic ...
  • Brillouin spectroscopy applied to protein fibers of the extracellular matrix 

    Edginton, RS; Mattana, S; Caponi, S; Fioretto, D; Green, E; Winlove, CP; Palombo, F (Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE), 2016)
