Ångström Tribomaterials Group

Welcome to Ångström Tribomaterials Group, a part of The Division of Applied Materials Science of Uppsala University.

Our research area is Tribology – the science of surfaces in mechanical contact under relative motion, which we approach from a materials perspective. The research often deals with questions around how can materials, coatings, surface treatments or lubrication be improved to reduce friction and wear.

We teach undergraduate and graduate courses (civilingenjörskurser) on materials science, surface analysis, electron microscopy, surface engineering, and tribology.
