    Abstract on my own research

    Scientific stuff here.

    I'm writing an abstract on my own scientific research but my english is not very good
    .

    Is there anyone here who could take a look at this text and explain my mistakes please?

    Kind regards.

    Some insects such as Papilio blumei or Suneve coronata are known for exhibiting polarization effects like color contrast or geometrical polarization rotation by reflection on their wing scales. The photonic structures found on these species and showing these properties are multilayered spherical cavities or triangular grooves which polarize the light due to inner multiple reflections. Such polarization effects in addition to intrinsic color mixing properties of these photonic structures are interesting in the anti-counterfeiting field thanks to their invisibility to the naked eye. In this paper, we report a micro fabrication technic to produce bio-inspired cylindrical (C-groove) and triangular grooves (V-grooves) that exhibit the same properties. Theoretical analyses were performed by multi-scale simulation (MS) as well as by finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) to compare the polarization capacity of both structures. The V-grooves show the best polarization contrast with a specular spectrum while C-grooves show less polarization effect but have a dispersive spectrum. In both case, the structures show additional optical properties such as diffraction, macroscopic color contrast under polarizer and contrast inversion due to the geometry which contribute to their uniqueness.

    It looks pretty good to me. There is one small error. "In both case" should of course be "in both cases." You should also be aware that "technic" is acceptable only in some American journals. In other American journals and in the whole remainder of the English-speaking world, the word is "technique."

    It is understood that the polarization effect is on light but it helps if a layman reads it.

    Is this better?

    "Report" is fine. You should really be referring to "plane-polarization" rather than "polarization", as the latter is a property of all light. When such reflection and diffraction effects cause what the layman calls "polarization", physicists in fact call this "plane-polarization" as the light, already having electromagnetic poles, is now harmonized onto distinct planes.

    Good idea, it will avoid confusion for the layman

    It seems correct to me

    That's right but the paper will be published in a general journal on bio-inspiration which is actually not for physicists only (so a lot of layman). We also keep the same terminology that all the previous papers on this topic.

    Nevertheless, thank you for the advice.

    I would have thought that a research would be more pro-active and go deeper into a subject than just reporting. No?
