This paper provides a brief insight into the world of nanotechnology and nanostructures, including a short excursus into their history, principles and related properties. Although there are many ways how to prepare nanostructures, this work describes only laser modification technique of polymers, which is still up to date for various potential applications. The study of the surface morphology by microscopic methods represents an integral part of the nanostructure research. The most significant of them are briefly described in this work.
