A new tribometer has been designed to carry out micro and nanoscale tribological experiments. The system has been designed for both use on the laboratory bench and in-situ in a scanning electron microscope.
Experiments have been carried out under a range of coatings to validate the testing system and examine frictional performance and durability. The damage to the coatings that was caused by single and multiple pass experiments under a range of different loading conditions was evaluated using confocal microscopy, AFM topography measurement, and in some cases SEM stereo reconstruction, as well as high resolution SEM
