Using lasers to create biomimetic surfaces that reduce friction reduction and lubricate materials for certain applications
The LiNaBioFluid project aims at creating biomimetic surfaces with particular wetting properties. The study is inspired by the integuments or behinds of certain animals such as bark bugs and lizards. The objective of LiNaBioFluid is to modify the surfaces’ properties using lasers. The results are expected to provide new insights and applications in the fields of friction reduction and lubrificants.
The project will use lasers to create biomimetic surfaces that reduce friction reduction and lubricate materials for certain applications.
