rolling element bearings, laser surface texturing (LST), fatigue life, wear, vibration
A short commentary on the two researcharticles published in Friction in 2021 is presented. Both articles reported experimental results of applications of laser surface texturing technology to the raceway of rolling element bearings. After briefly reviewing the main findings of the articles, the arguable problems and distinctions between the two articles are pointed out.
