Abstract

By means of infrared spectroscopy and atomic-force microscopy, alkanotrophfic Rhodococcus bacteria have been shown to actively affect the surface of quartz glass in aqueous solutions of aluminum, zirconium, and copper salts. Changes in the characteristics of the solutions and the strength of the sample have been observed. It has been found that nanoscale amorphous or crystalline layers (island structures) are formed on the sample surface. The effect of the presence of a carbon nutrition source on changes in the sample characteristics has been studied.
