This paper reports the development of nonwoven nanofibers of pure and
iron-doped titanium dioxide (TiO(2)) and evaluation of their
antimicrobial attributes for using them as disinfectant gauze for wound
healing upon brief activation by ultraviolet/infrared (UV/IR)
illumination. It was found that the fibers exhibited superior
bactericidal affinity when exposed briefly (3-12 s) to either
multiphoton laser or infrared radiations. On the other hand, exposure to
a UV beam for up to 20 min was not effective in mitigating the bacterial
colonization of the Escherichia coli.
