STSM: Evaluating the anti-biofilm activity of surfaces composed of ZnO/Ag heterostructures

STSM completed: ZnO/Ag heterostructures are expected to exhibit UVA-induced photocatalytic effect which are due to the presence of ZnO and magnified by the presence of Ag nanoparticles. While these surfaces have been shown to be effective against planktonic bacteria, their
