Abstract

The structure and optical properties of the elytra of Taiwanese bronze scarabs () were investigated. The elytron is composed by a scale-like texture on the surface and a repeated bi-layers underneath. The reflectivityspectrum shows iridescence that the peaks shifts from yellow to green color regions as long as the incident angle () increases. A shoulder peak at 600 nm ( = 20) is absent after gently scraping the surface, which indicates that the yellow color is contributed by the scale-like texture. The remaining peak at 550 nm ( = 20) in the spectrum resembles the simulated spectrum by assuming the refractive index of = 1.54 and = 1 for the adjacent bi-layered structure. This implies that the multi-layered structure contributes to the green coloration as well as the iridescent effect.
