Abstract

In this work, titanium nitride nanowires have been grown on a magnesium oxide substrate using a pulsed laser deposition technique. The selection of titanium nitride as a material of interest has been made due to its stellar properties of high melting point, good diffusion barrier, high hardness, good electrical conductivity, and scattered reports in the literature about its biocompatibility. In this work, gold has been used as a catalyst
