Janus particles are spherical colloids with hemispheres of different surface chemistry. In this talk, I will describe their self-assembly as investigated through a combination of experiments, analytical calculations, and simulations. Furthermore, I will discuss how anisotropic coupling of Janus particles to the surrounding solvent can affect sedimentation and aggregation behaviour.
