A smart plasmonic absorber is developed based on a metal–polymer bionanocomposite. A novel fabrication approach is adopted for filtration of a metal nanoparticle containing aqueous suspension by a bio(protein)-functionalized nanofibrous membrane. Desirably, nearly all the metal nanoparticles are captured by the protein ligands immobilized onto the nanofibers, creating a metal–polymer bionanocomposite. Conformational changes of the protein upon wetting leads to performance as an omnidirectional black absorber.
