Atomic-Scale Control of Friction by Actuation of Nanometer-Sized Contacts
<p>Stiction and wear are demanding problems in nanoelectromechanical devices, because of their large surface-to-volume ratios and the inapplicability of traditional liquid lubricants. An efficient way to switch friction on and off at the atomic scale is achieved by exciting the mechanical reso...
