The European project IND11 “Metrology to Assess the Durability and Function of Engineered Surfaces” (MADES), piloted by NPL, aims to increase the efficiency and utilization of engineered surfaces by studying wear phenomena. This is to increase the competitiveness of the industry, reducing costs on the one hand, and secondly the impact on the environment. In this context, the joint research laboratory (LNE-CNAM) characterizes the surface and contamination of different materials have undergone wear using an optical roughness-meter and a thermal desorption mass spectrometry device.
