This measurement describes experiments to explore the use of a chromatic aberration probe for real time in-situ measurement of the wear to one component of a wear couple in sliding wear experiments.
The chromatic aberration probe was shown to provide useful measurements of wear to the disc in the pin-on-disc experiments. When coupled to a careful examination of the wear surfaces with 3D optical microscopy, a better understanding of the processes of wear that occurred was obtained.
