In collaboration with the European partners from EUROCORE FANAS the project will be finalized. The research will be focused on the study of friction on superstructures, nanostructures and close to defects to determine the range of dissipative interactions. The role of interfaces will be further investigated. The experimental work is compared with numerical simulations from the partners. The relationship between micro- and macro-scale processes of friction and wear will be studied by instruments, which cover different ranges under well defined conditions. Dissipation on surfaces, which are covered by adsorbates, will be explored by dynamic and static force microscopy.
