Abstract: By mimicking the fine structures of butterflies' wings and peacocks' feathers, we have successfully brought structural color to silk fabrics. The three-dimensional (3D) face centre cubic (FCC) opal or inverse opal structure was constructed on the surface of the silk fabrics by materials assembly. The diversified colors were achieved by precisely controlling the lattice constants of the photonic crystals. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications.
