In this study, we prepared hybrid materials with C and Ag layers on the surface of polydimethylsiloxane polymer (PDMS). The prepared samples were subjected to thermal treatment and modification with high energy KrF excimer laser in single shot mode. The change in the surface morphology of the samples was investigated by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and the chemical composition of the prepared nanocomposites was studied by Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS). Finally, the samples were tested for antibacterial activity using two bacterial strains of Gram-positive S. epidermidis and Gram-negative E.coli. Antibacterial properties were observed on the prepared samples in both bacteria colonies.
