Colloidal Titanium Nitride Nanobars for Broadband Inexpensive Plasmonics and Photochemistry from Visible to Mid-IR Wavelengths

The fabrication of titanium nitride (TiN) nano bars obtained using a two-step procedure based on a wet chemical route synthesis of TiO 2 nanowires and their subsequent high-temperature annealing in ammonia flow are presented. Electromagnetic simulations of the resulting TiN nano bars reveal a rich set of optical resonances featuring transverse, longitudinal, and mixed transverse–longitudinal plasmonic modes that cover energies from the visible to MIR region.
