... environment with a high proportion of Rayleigh scattering, due to the presence of sub-wavelength particles. Sector-shaped pieces of linear polarizer (Rosco 730011, London, UK) were sandwiched between two circular pieces of 3 mm thick Perspex™. The transmission axes of the filter segments were oriented either...

...Richard O. Prum; Jeff A. Cole; Rodolfo H. Torres SUMMARY For nearly 80 years, the non-iridescent, blue, integumentary structural colours of dragonflies and damselflies (Odonata) have been attributed to incoherent Tyndall or Rayleigh scattering. We investigated the production of the integumentary...

... the observed blue hues by coherent scattering alone. The Fourier power spectra and the observed reflectance spectra falsify assumptions and predictions of the incoherent, Rayleigh scattering hypothesis. Samples of blue Marmosa and Caluromys scrotum conform generally to the anatomy seen in Mandrillus...
