NATO Science for Peace and Security Multi-Year Project:

Biological and bioinspired structures for multispectral surveillance  

Project aim: Through this project we will develop a proof-of-the-concept multispectral surveillance system, inspired by, evolutionary optimized, nano- and micro-structures of insect wings. Compared to existing systems, which are restricted to narrow spectral bands, the proposed system will cover ultraviolet (UV), visible and infrared (IR) radiation. Micron-sized particles with internal nanostructures, similar to butterfly wing scales, will be used as sensing elements. Radiation-induced perturbations will be amplified by the interaction with the surrounding gas and detected by sensitive holographic techniques.
