Efficient Asymmetric photothermal source: Designing a heating Janus-Nanojet

  title={Efficient Asymmetric photothermal source: Designing a heating Janus-Nanojet},
  author={Javier Gonz'alez-Colsa and Alfredo P'erez and Fernando Bresme and Fernando Moreno and Pablo Albella},
Janus particles have flourished as subject of intensive research due to their synergetic properties and their promising use in different fields, especially in biomedicine. The combination of materials with radically different physical properties in the same nanostructure gives rise to the so-called Janus effects, allowing phenomena of a contrasting nature to occur in the same architecture. In particular, interesting advantages can be taken from a thermal Janus effect for photoinduced…
