Deadline: 01/04/2006

The European Science Foundation Nanotribiology Programme is offering support for research visits to stimulate cooperation between different research groups in different European countries through the exchange of individuals. The study of friction, adhesion, fracture and wear processes on the nanometer scale is a central issue. Specific questions to be addressed: Dissipation mechanism of contacts in relative motion, novel nano-materials for tribology, tribochemistry, triboluminescence and mechanical properties of quantum contacts.
