Self-assembly of active amphiphilic Janus particles

In this article, we study the phenomenology of a two dimensional dilute suspension
of active amphiphilic Janus particles. We analyze how the morphology of the aggregates
emerging from their self-assembly depends on the strength and the direction of the active
forces. We systematically explore and contrast the phenomenologies resulting from particles
with a range of attractive patch coverages. Finally, we illustrate how the geometry of the
colloids and the directionality of their interactions can be used to control the physical
properties of the assembled active aggregates and suggest possible strategies to exploit self-
propulsion as a tunable driving force for self-assembly.
