    • Absence of red structural color in photonic glasses, bird feathers, and certain beetles 

      Magkiriadou, Sofia; Park, Jin-Gyu; Kim, Young-Seok; Manoharan, Vinothan N. (American Physical Society (APS), 2014)
      Colloidal glasses, bird feathers, and beetle scales can all show structural colors arising from short-ranged spatial correlations between scattering centers. Unlike the structural colors arising from Bragg diffraction in ...
    • Breaking trade-offs between translucency and diffusion in particle-doped films 

      Benjamin Rogers, W.; Corbett, Madeleine Clare; Magkiriadou, Sofia; Guarillof, Philippe; Manoharan, Vinothan N. (Optical Society of America (OSA), 2014)
      Particle-doped thin films that are translucent and diffusive have applications in cosmetics, coatings, and display technologies, but finding material combinations that produce these effects simultaneously is challenging: ...
    • Cold, Optically Dense Samples of Atomic Rubidium 

      Magkiriadou, Sofia; Patterson, David; Nicolas, Timothée; Doyle, John M. (Institute of Physics, 2011)
      Cold and optically dense gases of atomic rubidium are produced using buffer gas cooling in combination with rapid, high-flow vapor injection. The observed rubidium density is 3 × 10\(^{12}\)cm\(^{−3}\) at a gas temperature ...
    • Disordered packings of core-shell particles with angle-independent structural colors 

      Magkiriadou, Sofia; Park, Jin-Gyu; Kim, Young-Seok; Manoharan, Vinothan N. (The Optical Society, 2012)
      Making materials that display angle-independent structural color requires control over both scattering and short-range correlations in the refractive index. We demonstrate a simple way to make such materials by packing ...
    • Full-Spectrum Photonic Pigments with Non-iridescent Structural Colors through Colloidal Assembly 

      Park, Jin-Gyu; Kim, Shin-Hyun; Magkiriadou, Sofia; Choi, Tae Min; Kim, Young-Seok; Manoharan, Vinothan N. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2014)
      Structurally colored materials could potentially replace dyes and pigments in many applications, but it is challenging to fabricate structural colors that mimic the appearance of absorbing pigments. We demonstrate the ...
    • Structural Color From Colloidal Glasses 

      Magkiriadou, Sofia (2015-01-05)
      When a material has inhomogeneities at a lengthscale comparable to the wavelength of light, interference can give rise to structural colors: colors that originate from the interaction of the material's microstructure with ...
