The research is focused on water disinfection via new technological concept based on smart combination of nanostructured TiO2 layer and silver nanoparticles. The effective TiO2/Ag NPs photocatalytic system active in visible range was created via anodization of Ti thin film and UV-assisted and electrochemical pulse deposition of Ag NPs. Its efficiency was evaluated on complete inhibition of yeast Candida glabrata. A morphology of TiO2/Ag NPs system was studied via scanning electron microscopy (SEM).Keywords: TiO2 nanotubes, anodic oxidation, electrodeposition, UV-assisted deposition, Ag NPs, C. glabrata
