Bacterial infection of cranial implants remains a major cause of implant failure, and often requires surgical intervention to remove and replace the fouled implant. Novel transparent implants may allow for mitigation of infection using optical therapies, without the need for invasive surgeries. In this study, we investigate a combined treatment with ZnO nanoparticles and femtosecond laser pulses to inhibit the growth of Escherichia coli (E. Coli) in vitro. The combined effect has shown a substantial reduction in the number of CFU/mL after incubation compared with no treatment.
