Laboratory for tribology and interface nanotechnology (L-TINT), with nearly 20 experts, is recognized domestically and worldwide for providing research and technological solutions in the fields of surface and interface nanotechnology, boundary lubrication and tribochemistry, for the development of functional surfaces and contact engineering and for management of friction and wear mechanisms in systems with conventional and nonconventional...
Applications for Erasmus+ Joint master programme TRIBOS 2015-2017 started on 10th of November 2014. We have also renew TRIBOS web-page making it even more informative.
The laboratory obtained a new FT-IR ATR module that enabled infrared spectroscopy of surfaces of hard samples, powders and liquids. New ATR modul with diamond crystal enables surface video control with extremely high accuracy.
In the year 2014, a PhD thesis defence took place within Laboratory of Tribology and interface nanotechnology.
University of Ljubljana placed the work of prof. dr. Mitjan Kalin entitled Contact nano engineering for molecular control of boundary lubrication and friction, amongst the ten most prominent research achievements in 2014.
