AB - : Cellulose is the most abundant biopolymer onEarth. Cellulose fibers, such as the one extracted form cottonor woodpulp, have been used by humankind for hundreds ofyears to make textiles and paper. Here we show how, byengineering light−matter interaction, we can optimize lightscattering using exclusively cellulose nanocrystals. Theproduced material is sustainable, biocompatible, and whencompared to ordinary microfiber-based paper, it showsenhanced scattering strength (×4), yielding a transport meanfree path as low as 3.5 μm in the visible light range. Theexperimental results are in a good agreement with thetheoretical predictions obtained with a diffusive model for light propagation.
