Antimicrobial Coatings and Films

Development of novel antimicrobial coatings and films functionalized by atmospheric cold plasma (ACP) and light emitting diode technologies is a novel approach. We are working on understanding and improving the antimicrobial and antifouling properties of these films and coatings against bacterial and fungal biofilms. 

Research Directions:

  • Metal oxide based nano-composite films and their antimicrobial properties
