Nature Inspired Nanotexturing Gives Graphene Boost In Light Absorption

The humble moth has provided inspiration to a team of top researchers at the Advanced Technology Institute at the University of Surrey, who have engineered graphene, a material that is usually terrible at absorbing light, to create a nanotextured graphene that can absorb 95% of incident light – all by mimicking the nanostructure found on on the eye of a moth.
