Materials Tribology / Materialien unter tribologischer Belastung

Gruppenbild

 

 

My group focuses on materials science aspects of materials under a tribological load.

Our main research topics are:

  • The elementary mechanisms for microstructural changes
  • Size effects
  • Contact mechanics
  • Reciprocating contacts and dead center effects
  • The transition from static to dynamic friction
  • Bio-inspired materials and structures

In order to be able to answer these questions:

  • We develop and build our own equipment and instrumentation, e.g. an extremely high resolution in situ reciprocating tribometer
  • Make use of ultra-high resolution electron and ion microscopy, including 3D reconstruction techniques
  • Morphologically texture surfaces by means of laser radiation
  • Employ modern x-ray techniques, including from synchrotron sources
  • Collaborate with scientists on an international basis

 

We always have very attractive topics available for bachelor and master theses, so please do contact us in case you are interested in joining the group!
