Understanding friction laws at the nanoscale and their relation to the macroscale

VIEWS: 31 PAGES: 2

In a previous TLT article, research conducted by Robert Carpick described the connection between the vibrational properties of atoms and friction.1 Carpick evaluated the effectiveness of hydrogen and deuterium atoms at resisting the motion of the tip of an atomic force microscope (AFM). [...] for the first time molecular dynamics simulations have quantitatively reproduced experimental friction forces and shear strengths.
