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...
The 6ᵗʰ European Conference on Tribology, ECOTRIB 2017, will take place between 7ᵗʰ and 9ᵗʰ June 2017 in Cankarjev dom in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
In July a PhD thesis defence took place within Laboratory for Tribology and Interface Nanotechnology.
Conference SLOTRIB 2016 will take place on the 17ᵗʰ of November 2016 in Ljubljana.
The 2nd International Conference on Polymer Tribology, POLYTRIB 2016 will take place on the 15th and 16th of September at the Grand Hotel Union in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Our Laboratory replaced old scanning electron microscope (SEM) with a brand new JEOL JSM IT100. Techniques (LV, HV, SED, BSED, EDS, etc.), which are available with the new SEM, allow us to perform surface analyses on samples made of various materials at magnifications between 5x and 300.000x.
Prof. Kalin attended the Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Jost Report, which is considered as the birthday of Tribology as an independent scientific discipline.
