1. An article, comprising:
a plurality of droplets dispersed within an outer phase, wherein:
the plurality of droplets comprise a first component and a second component immiscible with the first component under a first set of conditions,
the plurality of droplets have a first average radius of curvature between the first component and the second component that causes light rays to have a first emission intensity at a given emission direction under the first set of conditions, and
the plurality of droplets have a second average radius of curvature between the first component and the second component that causes light rays to have a second emission intensity at the given emission direction, different than the first emission intensity, under a second set of conditions, different than the first set of conditions.
