Simulated Solar Microwave Radiation Blocks the Formation of Biofilms


The article presents the results of the experimental study that was devoted to determining the blocking influence of the solar microwave radiation on the process of biofilm formation in Gram-positive and Gram-negative microorganisms. The microwave generator that allows simulating microwave “splashes” of the Sun in the frequency range (4.0 - 4.3 GHz) with the controlled intensity of radiation (from 50 μW/sm2 to 500 μW/sm2) was used for conducting this research. It is found out that the simulated solar radiation of the microwave range blocks the formation of the extracellular matrix by the opportunistic microorganisms. The results of this study confirm the hypothesis of the evolutionary nature of the leading role of the microwave radiation of the Sun in the life processes of organisms. The technology of the exposure on the microorganisms that was used in the experiment opens up the real prospects for reducing the persistent potential of microorganisms and improving the efficiency of the bacterial infections treatment.
