Color by numbers

My latest feature for the Berkeley Science Review, Color by numbers, takes readers on a journey through the nanoscale phenomena that make our visual experience so vibrant. By exploring the fundamental science behind color — from quantum physics to evolutionary biology — as well as applications inspired by this science, such as solar cells and futuristic displays, I invite readers to take a new perspective on our colorful world.
