    • Structural lubricity under ambient conditions 

      Cihan, Ebru; İpek, Semran; Durgun, Engin; Baykara, Mehmet Z. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      Despite its fundamental importance, physical mechanisms that govern friction are poorly understood. While a state of ultra-low friction, termed structural lubricity, is expected for any clean, atomically flat interface ...
    • Structure and nanotribology of thermally deposited gold nanoparticles on graphite 

      Cihan, Ebru; Özoğul, Alper; Baykara, Mehmet Z. (Elsevier, 2015)
      We present experiments involving the structural and frictional characterization of gold nanoparticles (AuNP) thermally deposited on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG). The effect of thermal deposition amount, as ...
    • Structure and nanotribology of thermally deposited gold nanoparticles on graphite 

      Cihan, Ebru (Bilkent University, 2015)
      Forming a complete understanding of the physical mechanisms that govern friction on the nanometer and atomic scales is an ongoing endeavor for scientists from various disciplines. While atomic force microscopy (AFM) has ...
