Chemical force microscopic (CFM) study of ultraviolet excimer laser irradiated polyamide was presented. The ability of CFM was used to image and discriminate the areas exposing different functional groups on polymers. CFM results showed that high-fluence laser treated polyamide has the highest adhesive force with the modified tip in a water medium when compared with the control and low-fluence ones.
