This paper aims at contributing to the study of laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPSS) and the description of their tribological properties in order to facilitate the knowledge for contact mechanical applications. To obtain laser parameters for LIPSS formation, we propose to execute two D2-Experiments. For the transfer of results from static experiments to areas of LIPSS we propose the discrete accumulation of fluences. Areas covered by homogeneously distributed LIPSS were machined. Friction force of these areas was measured using a tribometer in a ball on flat configuration. The friction force was found to be higher on the structured area than on the initial surface. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
