Spiders emit rainbows from their abdomens causing fever

The rainbow spider (Maratus robinsoni) has become a special spider in Australia that has the ability to do miracles that only technology can do.

Rainbow spiders (Maratus robinsoni), especially neat-bodied male spiders, are capable of producing intense rainbow signals during courtship displays between males and females. This is the first known example in the wild where male spiders use an entire rainbow of colors to entice females. Dr Bor-Kai Hsiung led an international team of researchers from the United States (UAkron, Cal Tech, UC San Diego, UNL), Belgium (Ghent University), the Netherlands (UGroningen) and Australia to explore discovered this rainbow-signaling spider.

Using a range of research techniques, including light and electron microscopy, hyperspectral imaging, distributed imaging, 3D nanoprinting, and optical modeling, the team discovered the source of the eruptions. An intense rainbow effect emerges from this spider’s distinctive abdomen. These rainbow flakes have a microscopic 3D contour with microscopic contour knitting together into nano-diffraction mesh structures on the surface.

Upon analysis, the scientists found an interaction between the surface nano-diffraction beam mask grid and the micro-curvature that allows light to be split and isolated into wavelengths at finer angles and small distances. than current artificial engineering technologies.

The inspiration from these rainbow spiders’ ultraviolet translucent flakes could be used to overcome current limitations in spectral analysis in applications that require spectral resolution at an extremely small scale. especially space instruments, chemical detection systems. And studying light on this particular spider could have implications for fields ranging from life sciences and biotechnology to materials science and engineering.
