Subproject B11

Additive Manufacturing of Three-dimensional Surfaces

In this project metallic surfaces are three-dimensionally structured on a sub 30 µm scale using three-dimensional laser lithography. The mechanical properties of the resulting surfaces can be tuned by design. We study the interaction between surface and underlying bulk material under compressive and tensile strain as well as sheer forces and investigate the formation and propagation of possible failures like cracks. We also focus on tribological properties of the surfaces and their behavior under dynamic stress. The results of this project might lead the way to improved surfaces with structures on the microscale.
