This chapter explores methods of engineering the elements of the roughness of a tribological surface and the effect of that process on performance. Texture and topography have a crucial influence on the tribological performance of surfaces. The presentation focuses on the dominant technology of laser texturing. The authors review the principles of the texturing process, its effects on friction and wear, and then discuss existing technical difficulties. It is shown that despite being practiced for a long time, and being promising, laser texturing still lacks standardization. To date, there is no agreement on a standardized design methodology that yields optimized textural features that meet the requirements of a prespecified application.
