Forming reliable and reproducible molecule–nanoelectrode contacts is one of the key issues for the implementation of nanoparticles as functional units into nanoscale devices. Utilizing heterometallic electrodes and Janus-type nanoparticles equipped with molecules allowing selective binding to a distinct electrode material represents a promising approach to achieve this goal. Here, the directed immobilization of individual Janus-type gold nanoparticles (AuNP) between heterometallic electrodes leading to the formation of asymmetric contacts in a highly controllable way is presented. The Janus-AuNP are stabilized by two types of ligands with different terminal groups on opposite hemispheres. The heterometallic nanoelectrode gaps are formed by electron beam lithography in combination with a self-alignment procedure and are adjusted to the size of the Janus-AuNP. Thus, by choosing adequate molecular end group/metal combinations, the immobilization direction of the Janus-AuNP is highly controllable. These resul...
