Molecular science opens a host of possibilities for improving tool performance using specialised coatings and materials. Well-designed coatings can extend equipment life or improve a tool’s effectiveness. And it begins with modelling at the molecular level, says Sven Krueger, chief scientist at Baker Hughes. “We do a lot of modelling at the molecular and atomic levels to really understand the physics and the behaviour of molecules at that level, and from there build the materials that we need,” Krueger says.
