Application of biomimetics principles in space optics
Author(s): K. Remisova; R. Hudec

Paper Abstract

The principles of biomimetics have been successfully applied in space optics, e.g. in Lobster-Eye X-ray optical systems. However, the recent increase in knowledge on vision of sea animals, especially on mirror eyes of scallops, crustaceans, and deep sea fishes, makes possible to consider other such applications. Especially the discoveries of mirror eyes of the deep sea fishes Dolichopteryx longipes and Rhynchohyalus natalensis are promising because of their unique arrangements and likely active optics.
