Abstract

This study is focused on Nanostructured AgO due to its novel properties. Here AgO-NWs manufactured by
low-cost, fast green synthesis using curcumin extract. AgO-NWs structures were characterized by FESEM
field emission electron microscope scanning. Uniform distribution can be seen for the AgO -NWs. The
AgO -NWs thin film exhibits a promising giant third-order nonlinearity and ultrafast character. It behaves
as a tunable refraction and absorption character the exciting energy is varied in the range of 80–120 mJ.
Silver is a wide-spectrum natural antimicrobial agent that applies to patented wound dressings with broad
applications. Today, AgO -NWs have attracted attention in Biophotonic Sensor. Here, AgO-NWs used to as
antimicrobial agent against common infecting pathogenic microbes E-coli. The results demonstrated that the
AgO-NWs against pathogenic bacterial organisms, they have possible antimicrobial activity and could be
regarded as an alternative antibacterial agent.
