Nano-level surface processing is becoming increasingly important in the development of modern materials. Laser technology allows to change the processing parameters in a wide range and achieve the desired surface properties – hydrophilic and hydrophobic for various fluids. In such circumstances, the benefit of any researcher would be to provide software that can quickly and visibly see and measure the shape, size and configuration of nano and microstructures to be obtained. It is especially important that the obtained results in the form of 3D graphs allow us to see the evolutionary trends of surface nanostructures and help to decide on changes in the processing parameters. The researcher would be given the opportunity to input a wide variety of parameters – laser wavelength, pulse power, polarization angle, pulse frequency, pulse duration, processing time or number of impulses per coordinate – and the result obtained in a short time would serve to better understand common trends and help to make an informed decision for the actual processing parameters to be used in the experiment.
