  • We present a novel experimental platform that links topographical and material changes with the friction and wear behavior of oil-lubricated metal surfaces. This concept combines state-of-the-art methods for the analysis of the surface topography on the micro- and nanoscale with the online measurement of wear. At the same time, it allows for frictional and lateral force detection. Information on the topography of one of the two surfaces is gathered in situ with a three-dimensional (3D… CONTINUE READING
