NANOTRIBOLOGY
10308001011114NANOTRIBOLOGYNanotribology is concerned with the interactions of objects at the nanoscale. These interactions are important as device structures are shrinking in size and information is compressed in space. Reducing friction of interacting surfaces will be very important in the area of micro and nano electromechanical devices. As one studies these interactions at nanometer precision, we see that they have a molecular basis. Thus the study of nanotribology is to do with understanding macroscopic processes such as friction at the molecular level. This is possible w…
