Structural superlubricity of platinum on graphite under ambient conditions: the effects of chemistry and geometry
(American Institute of Physics Inc., 2017)
An investigation of the frictional behavior of platinum nanoparticles laterally manipulated on graphite has been conducted to answer the question of whether the recent observation of structural superlubricity under ambient ...
Genetically-tunable mechanical properties of bacterial functional amyloid nanofibers
(American Chemical Society, 2017)
Bacterial biofilms are highly ordered, complex, dynamic material systems including cells, carbohydrates, and proteins. They are known to be resistant against chemical, physical, and biological disturbances. These superior ...
