This second edition of Handbook of Micro/Nanotribology addresses the rapid evolution within this field, serving as a reference for the novice and the expert alike. Two parts divide this handbook: Part I covers basic studies, and Part II addresses design, construction, and applications to magnetic storage devices and MEMS.
Discussions include:
surface physics and methods for physically and chemically characterizing solid surfaces
roughness characterization and static contact models using fractal analysis
sliding at the interface and friction on an atomic scale
scratching and wear as a result of sliding
nanofabrication/nanomachining as well as nano/picoindentation
lubricants for minimizing friction and wear
surface forces and microrheology of thin liquid films
measurement of nanomechanical properties of surfaces and thin films
atomic-scale simulations of interfacial phenomena
micro/nanotribology and micro/nanomechanics of magnetic storage devices
This comprehensive book contains 16 chapters contributed by more than 20 international researchers. In each chapter, the presentation starts with macroconcepts and then lead to microconcepts. With more than 500 illustrations and 50 tables, Handbook of Micro/Nanotribology covers the range of relevant topics, including characterization of solid surfaces, measurement techniques and applications, and theoretical modeling of interfaces.
