Diverse designs of naturally evolved nano-scale periodicity are known to generate optical functionality in the living world. While such systems have clearly evolved for biological purposes, they are increasingly offering inspiration and design protocols for applied photonic technologies. This lecture will present both an overview of the knowledge base of this emerging field of study, as well as descriptions of several exciting recent discoveries that reflect natures optical expertise and design ingenuity.
