MfM Group

Welcome to our Homepage...

The MfM group at Friedrich Schiller University Jena investigates various mechanical properties of surfaces in the nanometre range. Of particular interest to us are friction, wear and adhesive properties of natural and artificial materials. The application of modern atomic force microscopy is aimed at this goal.
