Research

We are developing a guiding principle to interface design for ultra-low friction based on creation of nano-interface, nano-scale measurement and simulation analysis. We research three scientific topics listed below.

  • Development of In-situ Analysis Systems of Friction/Wear and Optimized Design of Nano-interfaces realizing ultra-low friction
  • Measurement Technology for Nano-level Elucidation of Friction & Interfacial Phenomena
  • Development of Tribo-Simulator for Analyzing Chemical Reactions on the Interface under Friction
