The research was conducted between the University of Texas in Austin, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The article explains that beetles have a microscopic triangular structure on their wings that reflects sunlight and simultaneously allows them to disperse body heat. The researchers then tried to copy the structure to produce a new material. The result is a composite of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and ceramic particles. The microstructure is obtained through an ad hoc printing process. The result is a film that replicates the characteristics of beetle wings. More
