Abstract

A gold nanoshell-functionalized polymer multilayer nanorocket performs self-propulsion upon the irradiation with NIR light in the absence of chemical fuel. Theoretical simulations reveal that the NIR light-triggered self-thermophoresis drives the propulsion of the nanorocket. The nanorocket also displays ­efficient NIR light-triggered propulsion in ­biofluids and thus holds considerable promise for various potential biomedical applications.
