Abstract

Bird-window collisions often lead to the death of the bird and damage to the window. However, many animals, including birds, can perceive UV light. Many species have hence developed visual communication in this wavelength range, for instance, thanks to photonic structures. Such structures allowed us to design a new UV-reflecting multilayered coating for bird-safe glazing, through a bioinspiration approach. This coating was optimised for bird and human visual perception.
