Scientists have discovered a startling natural properties of butterfly wings kind of Morpho. On this basis, established nanobiokompozitny material that can be used in portable electronic devices, sensors with high sensitivity and environmentally friendly batteries. Report on the development of a promising new material was published in the journal ACS Nano. Modern scientists truly are subject miracles of human ingenuity. Only recently have they been synthesized material for its durability superior diamond

Eydzhiro Miyako and his colleagues explain that the Morpho butterfly wings have such natural properties that can not be reproduced artificially by techniques currently available science. These wings lightweight, thin and flexible. They absorb solar energy, self-cleaning and water repellent.

A team of scientists led by Miyako works with small cylinders made of carbon nanotubes and fascinated by their unique electrical, mechanical, thermal and optical properties. Scientists decided to join the wings of butterflies with nanotubes for hitherto unseen hybrid material.

The material represents a network, similar to a honeycomb honey, layered on the wings of butterflies Morpho. This composite material is activated with a laser. The resulting material is heated more rapidly than either of its components alone. It is characterized by high electrical conductivity.

Scientists are satisfied with the result, and the resource Resource e! Science News brings their statement, full of hope for a brilliant future material created by them:

Our current study provides an important way to progress towards the creation of “smart” nanobiomaterials for various applications, such as digital diagnostics, portable electronic devices, photoelectric and photovoltaic cells.

Researchers are constantly working to find new materials. Recently, they have been developed three-dimensional graphene can replace platinum in solar cells .
