Microscope video of capped Janus particles propelled in Hydrogen peroxide under influence of varying magnetic fields. The caps compose of ferromagnetic (Co) and paramagnetic (Pd, H2O2 catalyst) elements carefully deposited onto one hemisphere of silica particles, which will later exhibit aligned magnetic moments upon saturation in 1 T magnetic field. The videos demonstrate different motion profiles depending on cluster shapes, with the later determined by cap-cap interaction of individual particles.
