We investigated energy dependence of the effect of UV-laser irradiation on the DRIFT spectra of softwood samples. Changes in the spectra of softwoods have been studied with 248.5 nm wavelength of UV-laser radiation. To monitor the energy dependence, different number of laser impulses were directed towards the sample’s surface. The dependence on energy of different bands can be listed into four groups. Broad absorption bands, which belong to the same chemical groups located at various positions, do not show consistent changes due to the absorption of different energy dozes. The intensity of OH bands for the treated samples can be higher or lower depending on the amount of radiation energy. In the CHn and in the band of non-conjugated carbonyl groups only absorption increase can be observed. Bands resulting from only one chemical component, and containing no other absorption maxima around them, uniformly decreased. The regions where the band of a chemical component lies next to another one, showed no consistent changes during the irradiation. The initial decrease was followed by increase.
