Abstract: The significant colors of peacock feather inspires people to explore the application of the structure color of feather and dynamic color of photonic crystals in printed matter or textiles. To investigate the mechanism of coloration and the impact of structure on the color, two-dimensional photonic crystal structure model with microscope and scanning electron microscopy of peacock feathers is taken into account. Combined with biomimetic nanotechnology, the idea of preparing artificial structure for coloration is put forward, which will explore the application of structural coloration in the fields of printing and dyeing, textile and others.

Key words: peacock feathers, nanostructure, biomimetic technology, structural coloration

摘要: 孔雀羽毛的绚丽色彩启发人们考虑是否能够将羽毛的结构色和动态色中的光子晶体应用于印刷品、纺织品中。通过采用光学显微镜和扫描电镜等手段对孔雀羽毛的微观结构进行了分析, 并参照二维光子晶体结构模型, 深入探讨混合色的形成机理及结构变化因素对颜色合成的影响。同时结合纳米仿生制备技术, 提出了人工仿生结构生色思路, 初步探讨结构生色在印染、纺织等领域的应用前景。
