Janus semiconductor objects can be electrogenerated by site-selective deposition of metal on the surface of spherical micro- and nanoparticles as demonstrated by A. Kuhn et al. in their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201704393). The synergetic combination of a strong electric field and UV light irradiation allows synthesis of such hybrid asymmetric materials with high spatial control and in a wireless way, that is, without physical connection between the modified objects and the electrodes.
