Wiki surface - an open access encyclopedia of surfaces

Dear Mechanicians,

a new project at the IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca (Lucca, Italy) has just been launched to create the first open access database of rough surfaces from nature and technology, see:

People are invited to contribute to the database by providing images of surfaces acquired using experimental techniques, as well as the corresponding elevation data field (raw x,y,z data in columns).

This database will provide useful information for scientists interested in using real surface topologies to understand the role of surface roughness in surface physics, chemistry and mechanics. 


Yours sincerely,

Marco Paggi
