Caption: The anti-reflection structures on the surface of one eye element on the head of a female mosquito. (family Culicidae). These bump structures interact with the wave nature of light to increase the transmission of light into the eye by decreasing the reflected light. Structures such as this are beginning to be incorporated into modern optical devices This is a scanning electron microscope image. The calibration bar is 1 um and the magnification is 9220 x.
