Nanotribology, Nanomechanics and Materials Characterization Studies
08 Jun 2009 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Bharat Bhushan
Fundamental nanotribological studies provide insight to molecular origins of interfacial phenomena including adhesion, friction, wear and lubrication.
Friction and wear of lightly loaded micro/nano components are highly dependent on the surface interactions (few atomic layers). Nanotribological and
nanomechanics studies are also valuable in the fundamental understanding of interfacial phenomena in macrostructures to provide a bridge between
science and engineering. This talk will present an overview of nanotribological and nanomechanics studies and their applications.
