Dr. Esteban Daniel Broitman

Senior Scientist SKF Research & Technology

Dr. Esteban Broitman holds a Ph.D. in Physics and a Docent (Habilitation) degree in Tribology. He has been doing academic research and teaching for more than 20 years at The College of William & Mary (USA), Carnegie Mellon University (USA), Linköping University (Sweden), and invited Professor at University of Sao Pablo (Brazil), and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is especially world-wide known for his research work on carbon-based coatings, and coating nanomechanics. Presently is a Senior Scientist in the area of Coatings at the SKF Research and Technology Development Center in Netherlands. His activities focus on the use of advanced surface engineering to control friction and wear at the macro-, micro-, and nano-scales.
