The group focuses its research essentially on the mechanical properties of polymeric surfaces, the mechanisms of damage of these surfaces, and the mechanical properties of soft matter surfaces. Researchers of this group mainly come from Mechanical and Materials Sciences. The group uses this unique and original position in the French research community to attempt to link physical and chemical properties of surfaces and sub-surfaces, with their tribological behaviour.
The major originalities of the group emerge from the experimental instrumentation that permits both in-situ visualisation and scale crossing (nanoscale to macroscale).
