Doping ease and the ability to readily nanoimprint silk films offer the possibility to rapidly prototype photonic devices that couple optical functions with embedded material properties. By imprinting fluorescent silk films with periodic nanoscale lattices matched to the emission spectra of the doping fluorophores it is possible to selectively enhance the emission from the film.
