Transmission electron microdiffraction was used to determine the crystal structure and epitaxial orientation of self-assembled titanium silicide nanowires (NW). The NWs were formed by deposition of ∼1 monolayer Ti on Si (111) at ∼850°C. It was shown that most of the NWs are incommensurate and fully strain relaxed and they generally extend below the surface with inclined incoherent interfaces.
