Welcome to our website…​

The MfM group at Friedrich Schiller University Jena is investigating several mechanical properties of sur­faces at the nano­meter scale. Especially interesting for us are friction, wear and adhesion processes on natural and artificial materials. State-of-the art atomic force micro­scopy is dedi­cated to this goal.
