AbstractAnocolumnar titanium coatings have been fabricated in two sputtering systems with very different characteristics (a laboratory setup and semi-industrial equipment), thus possessing different morphologies (150 nm long columns tilted 20° from the normal and 300 nm long ones tilted 40°, respectively). These coatings exhibit similar antibacterial properties against Gram positive (Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram negative (Escherichia coli) bacteria. When a synergic route is followed and these coatings are functionalized with tellurium (Te) nanorods, the antibacterial properties are enhanced, especially for the long nanocolumns case. The biocompatibility is preserved in all the nanostructured coatings.
