Tomas Hudec is a Postgraduate research student within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Tomas graduated from the Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovakia) in 2017 with a degree in Solid state physics (MSc).

Tomas Hudec is a Postgraduate research student currently pursuing a PhD as part of the nCATS research group where he is supervised by Professor Tomas Polcar and Assoc. Prof. Marian Mikula. His PhD is focused on the thin coatings with self-lubricating properties. Solid lubricants are a special group of solids with very low friction coefficients even in dry conditions (no need to supply oil lubricants). Solid lubricant thin films are extensively used in space applications where the environmental conditions strictly limit the use of other types of conventionally used lubricants, such as oils and greases. This project is in collaboration with Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovakia) and Czech Technical University in Prague (Czech Republic).
