Study of self-lubricant textured coatings.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The aim of the research is the combination of surface texturing and self-lubricant coatings to reduce friction and wear of mating surfaces. The selected coatings will be some different combination of CrN/TiN and MoS2, due to their high wear/corrosion resistance and self-lubricating properties, respectively. The surface texturing will be performed mainly by means of laser ablation. The key parameters, such as film thickness and composition, and geometry and size of the texture, will be optimized in order to reduce wear and friction of such materials usually used in mechanical applications (i.e. steel, cast iron).

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
