Modification of polymer substrates can essentially change the properties of material and thereby it allows their usage in attractive fields of material research. Laser treatment can be successfully applied for change in physico-chemical surface properties and/or for selective change of surface morphology with pattern construction. Three major applications of laser induced structures were described, cytocompatibility control, application as anti-bacterial substrate and plasmonic-based detection system. The construction of a second generation antibacterials using the synergic effect of either nanopatterning of polymers by application of a laser or noble metals deposition and consequent modification of nanostructures was presented.
