Optical biomimetics, the study of natural systems to inspire novel solutions to problems in optical technologies, is attracting increasing interest. Many optical systems in nature have been refined over millions of years, and they can often provide insights into better designs, or inspirations into new approaches. Optical biomimetics provides and reviews key research in this area, focusing on the characterisation of optical effects in nature, and showing how they can be applied in new technologies.
