Research output: Contribution in Book/Catalog/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


H. coerulea's elytra show a strong two-photon fluorescence signal, which depends on the presence of water in the photonic structure. A polarization-dependent Third Harmonic Generation signal was detected as well and thoroughly investigated.
