Jean Michel MARTIN is an Emeritus Professor at Ecole Centrale de Lyon (University of Lyon, France) since 2011. He obtained his PhD in 1978 from University of Lyon. He is an honorary member of the University Institute of France (IUF). He has more than 35 years of extensive experience in fundamental and applied research in tribology of thin films, diamond like coatings, boundary lubrication, antiwear and extreme-pressure additives, and surface analysis. He discovered superlubricity of pure MoS2 in ultrahigh vacuum and superlubricity of DLC coatings with OH-containing lubricants, implemented new additive formulations for metal forming and engine applications, and developed new analytical techniques for tribofilm analyses (XPS/AES/ToF-SIMS, XANES, etc.). He has published more than 160 papers in tribology, surface analysis and lubricant engineering and possessed 14 patents.
