The possibilities of modifying a number of physicochemical properties of the surface of a large group of materials, mainly inorganic optical materials, are considered when performing laser deposition of carbon nanotubes oriented in an electric field with varying strength on the surface of the studied structures. The focus is on the properties of carbon nanotubes such as their low refractive index and high strength. Experimental results are presented, supported by simulations based on molecular dynamics models. Expansion of the field of application of structured materials in spectroscopy, display, laser, and biomedical technology, as well as the aircraft and automotive industries is predicted.
