A process based on a simulation of an industrial float line has been used for deposition of TiO2 on glass slides. The process is operated at atmospheric pressure rather than under vacuum condition. A variety of organic pre-cursors can be used for TiO2 formation and films of varying thickness can be produced. Illumination of the TiO2 coated slides with UVc light had significant anti-microbial effects on Ps.aeruginosa cells in suspension.
