A new technique for surface modification of polymer fibers is introduced by irradiating with UV an excimer laser, this technique can be used to modify the chemical and physical properties of fibers surface. Under certain conditions the irradiation of polymer fibers induced a characteristic morphology on the polymer fiber surface. The original smooth surface of polymer fibers changes its morphology to a rather regular roll-like structure perpendicular to the fiber axis after this treatment. The dependence of characteristic surface data on laser fluency and pulse number are studied. The mechanism for formation periodic surface is also discussed.
