Obtaining lubricant film thickness values within a compliant contact is a challenging problem for several reasons [1]: • Lubricant film thickness covers a wide range of values. • The required measuring range is from fractions to hundreds of microns. • Contact area is considerably large when compared to “hard”, metallic contacts. • Many soft components have a high roughness compared to surfaces usually investigated with established techniques.
