Scientific skills

The success of LABEX MANUTECH-SISE is based on pooling of the skills and know-how of all LABEX's public and private partners of LABEX :

Surface Phenomena

  • Contact mechanics
  • Friction, wear & lubrication
Surface reactivity
  • High temperature oxidation
  • Hydrogen embrittlement
  • Wettability
  • Surface energy

Surface Functionalization

Surface texturing
  • Laser processes
  • Mechanical processes
  • Photo-organization & nanoparticles
  • Sol-gel
  • Ink & metal jet
  • Powder based technologies

Interface & Material Assembly

Interface behaviour
  • Experimental modeling
  • Computer modeling
Assembling technologies
  • Simulation of multiphysics processes
  • Bonding, brazing, sintering, welding

Top-down Surface Analysis

Surface topography & imaging
  • Multi-scale topography analysis
  • Imaging for surface & process analysis
Material probing
  • Chemical analysis (XPS, AES…)
  • Crystallography & Stress Analysis (FIB, XRD, EBSD...)
  • Mechanical characterization
Based on these scientific skills, LABEX MANUTECH-SISE is organized along 4 scientific axes. Each axis is coordinated by two facilitators. All the animators are part of the Scientific Committee of LABEX.

Each axis is independant in its scientific activities :
  • organization of work days,
  • development and proposal of projects to be labeled,
  • establishing axis offices to ensure the representativeness of all the partners concerned.

The name given to an axis is intentionally atypical. It reflects the desire to combine scientific skills for any project approved and financed by LABEX.
