Application areas

Surface science and engineering is multisectoral and has various industrial applications. Whether for the land transport area, aeronautics or the energy sector, our goal is to improve the performance of various kinds of systems but also to increase wear, friction and corrosion resistance in complex and tough environments (production and storage of energy and the chemical industry). The wettability and water repellency proprieties are used in aeronautic, biology and the health sector while optical and electric surface functions are valued for advanced technologies in defense and spatial domains as well as for large scientific instruments.
