dr. Bart Weber
CV / Biography
Bart Weber leads the Contact Dynamics group at the Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography and is appointed as assistant professor at the University of Amsterdam, both in the Netherlands. His research focuses on various aspects of tribology: the science of friction, lubrication and wear. Topics of interest have ranged from understanding how small amounts of water influence friction on granular materials, to interrogating the slipperiness of ice and visualizing the interplay between surface topography, contact mechanics and friction using stress-sensitive fluorescent probe molecules. The emphasis of current work is on understanding how wear and adhesion influence the short stroke friction behavior of stiff materials in the context of nanolithography.
