Despite its name, the Rose butterfly is black and cold-blooded. Its wings have evolved to be soak in the sun’s power. Scientists have been able to create a 3D model of the wings’ nanostructure to better understand it.
The secret is a random distribution of holes that allow it to absorb light from every angle, then distribute it.
The result of this research is a solar panel which is lighter and twice as efficient.
