Paper Abstract

Plants are remarkable optofluidic devices that function almost exclusively through the interaction of two fluids (water and air) and optics (sunlight) [1]. We will describe some of the optofluidic mechanisms that have evolved in plants and discuss implications for optofluidic devices for solar harvesting. [1] Optofluidics of plants.
