Nanoscale heating governs a multitude of processes relevant to molecular states and biomolecular functionality. In this mini-review, we describe application of localized laser–nanoparticle heating for polymeric polyelectrolyte capsules and layers, covering the principles governing the nanoscale laser-induced heat generation, synthesis of nanoparticles and their adsorption on polyelectrolyte multilayer membrane and different applications of these effects. Release of encapsulated materials is considered as one of the methods of release, while its further application is linked, among others, with intracellular delivery and release of encapsulated peptides, remotely controlled reactors, polymeric surface properties and corrosion protection.
