The research equipment is (co)financed by the Slovenian Research and Innovation Agency


Purpose of the equipment and additional information:

We have recently purchased a new atomic force microscope (AFM) MFP 3D Origin, Asylum Research, Oxford Instruments. One of the main advantages of the new AFM is quantitative evaluation of the mechanical and tribological properties of surfaces and boundary films, such as for instance elasticity, damping, stiffness, friction, energy dissipation, etc. These properties of the boundary films are essential for newer tribological studies and allow for the new development of green lubrication technologies that use new additives and form films that are usually weaker, therefore quantitative comparison between them is crucial.

Access to the equipment:

Equipment is available in the Laboratory TINT for faculty staff and other laboratory partners. Reservation of the eqipment and a qualified member of the research group is mandatory at least one week in advance. Contact:
