Antimicrobial Coatings

The science behind the research

Antimicrobial coatings have been widely investigated for different applications such as medical devices in clinics, self-cleaning coatings in industry, and linens and clothing at homes

Ongoing research

In our group, Ag based antimicrobial coatings have been deposited by non-vacuum vapour depositions methods. The coatings show very good antimicrobial properties and can be easily deposited on different substrates such as glass, paper, fibre and stainless steel at large area.
