Abstract

We report a new class of bio-inspired nanotadpoles (NTPs) with component-specific functionalities. The plasmonic NTPs with a gold-coated head and a reactive ion etching-treated tail showed the tail length dependence of their cellular uptake, enabling the photothermal treatment of cancer cells with high efficacy.
