  • Patent number: 10807122
    Abstract: Reflectin proteins are proteins derived from cephalopods (certain species of squid) which have unusual optical properties. Disclosed herein are thin films of reflectin proteins which can be tuned to reflect infrared light. Advantageously, the films can be tuned dynamically over short time scales, to reflect at different wavelengths. Disclosed herein are novel infrared-reflective coatings, methods of making such coatings, and infrared-reflective objects such as textiles, building materials, and camouflage materials.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: June 23, 2018
    Date of Patent: October 20, 2020
    Assignee: The Regents of the University of California
    Inventors: Alon Gorodetsky, Long Phan, David Ordinario, Emil Karshalev, Michael Shenk, Ward Gale Walkup, IV
