Physical Characterization and Optimization of Surfaces

measurement and analysis
design and optimization

Mechanical characterization of arbitrary structured surfaces (e.g. coatings or modifications) is a very important requirement for application-oriented engineering or optimization of surface structures by means of modeling and simulation. If generic material properties were determined in material characterization by using our analytical models, an expensive and time-consuming trial-and-error testing can be reduced drastically due to a subsequent simulation-aided optimization.

Physical Consulting

No matter if it is about optimization of functional coatings on textile fabrics, mechanical characterization of optical coating systems, application-oriented engineering of wear-resistant coatings, or any specific application of measurement instruments and physical analysis for quality assurance: we can advise you on the topic surface mechanics in consideration of all related fields like chemistry, tribology, thermodynamics, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, etc.
