The mechanism of light reflectance in silverfish

Abstract:

The reflectance of the common silverfish was first studied by Robert Hooke and is reported in his book Micrographia. Here we report a new study of the mechanism of the reflectance in the common silverfish (Ctenolepisma sp.). The reflectance from the body of the animal was measured with and without scales using optical spectrophotometry. The structure of the surface region of the body of the animal was studied in cross-section using transmission electron microscopy, revealing a doubly chirped ...
