The topography of a surface is of decisive importance for the properties and qualities of many products. It is frequently the case that surfaces have fundamentally important functional properties eg surface properties provide the basic prerequisites for the product's commercial success. This can for example involve surfaces which dampen the level of noise of the gearbox or increase the durability of a cogwheel. Similarly in a medical context such as in a tooth or hip replacement implant, the material's surface qualities are very important.
Research into functional surfaces in Halmstad is directed towards finding general methods for strengthening the intimate interplay between the function of the surface, its manufacturing possibilities and opportunities to study function and determine manufacturing parameters using various measurement methods.
