Tribology

Research in tribology includes studies on head/disk metrology, interferometric microscopy, interfacial stiction and adhesion, environmental effects and tribochemistry, boundary and mixed lubrication, thin-film sliding damage mechanisms, tribofilm formation on ceramics, elastoplastic and fracture mechanics analysis of layered media, development of new film materials by ion implantation and CVD techniques, and theoretical studies on surface texture and flash temperature rises in sliding contact.
