RÅC JOINT

Rontgen Angstrom Cluster logo

"The Röntgen Ångström Cluster project JOINT – “lubrication-structural reasons for high functionality” is a project realized by HZG together with German and Swedish partners in order to investigate how molecules interact and how they and the structures they form generate the nearly frictionless movement of joints under load and rapidly changing shear conditions. Sample environments for two types of measurements are developed in the framework of the project. Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) measurements utilizing a microfluidic setup are performed to investigate the behavior of the different components under shear. Furthermore, efforts are being made for implementing a sample cell which offers the opportunity to measure under different load and pressure conditions.
