Who we are

Contact and Surface Engineering Laboratory (CSEL) at Texas Tech University. Our research is focusing on thermomechanical/chemical contact behavior of materials in relation to surface degradation, material transfer, and magnetic/electrical properties.

We are performing fundamental research on diverse applications which are carrying out atomic-to-bulk scale surface contact such as:


Head-Disk-Inferface in HDD Rocket Sled System (C. Hale, 2008)
