Summary

Chapter 12 deals with biomaterials that are emerging as an important class of materials for nanophotonic applications. Bioderived and bioinspired materials are described together with bioassemblies that can be used as templates. Applications discussed are energy-harvesting, low-threshold lasing, and high-density data storage.
