Pre-columbian nanotechnology: reconciling the mysteries of the maya blue pigment
Journal Applied Physics A: Materials Science & ProcessingVolume 90, Number 1 / January, 2008, DOI 10.1007/s00339-007-4287-z

∗This study is dedicated to our mentor and friend Constantino Reyes-Valerio, who, with his expertise, dedication and enthusiasm was able to instill in all of us the desire to study what was one of his life loves: Maya Blue. None of our studies could have been possible without the tremendous contribution of Constantino. We thank him deeply.
