Perfect Particles Make 3D Structurally Coloured Objects

The particle theory of matter sits at the centre of the scientific methodology. Objects that appear uniform, solid and homogeneous at the everyday macroscopic scale are, when you investigate them with sufficient resolution and detail, in fact made up of particles (atoms, molecules and compounds) that are not the same entity as the object they form.
