Abstract

Synthetic, biomimetic microlens arrays with integrated pores, whose appearance and functions are similar to their biological prototype were studied. A learning system of natural optical system, which offers outstanding optical properties was also presented. The use of three-beam interference lithography to create a synthetic, biomimetic analog of the brittlestar microlens array was also presented. The successful creation of the porous, hexagonal microlens arrays which are similar to their biological prototype by subjecting a negative-tone photoresist was discribed.
