Piled-up hotspots, which are engineered naturally by subwavelength structures in Cu butterfly wing scales, significantly enhance the Raman signals of analytes. These results will help identify the optimal scale morphologies out of ca. 175 000 butterfly species for biotemplates to replicate for surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) applications and bring affordable high-quality SERS substrates as consumables to ordinary laboratories across the world.
