Research Papers

Trek products are utilized around the world for scientific research. Many research groups publish the results of their work in scientific and peer-reviewed journals. Published papers are not always available in the public domain. For such papers we provide citation information for your convenience. If the paper is in the public domain, or if we’ve received written permission to post the paper, we offer a link to the downloadable version. To view author affiliations, hover the mouse pointer over the author's name.

The following list represents a selection of published papers for which Trek products were utilized. We welcome input from other research groups regarding additional papers to be considered for posting to this website page. Please send your suggestions to and include mention of the Trek product utilized in the research as well as your contact information in the event we have additional questions.
