Structure and nanotribology of thermally deposited gold nanoparticles on graphite
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 ...
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 ...
Nanoscale tribology of graphene grown by chemical vapor deposition and transferred onto silicon oxide substrates
(Cambridge University Press, 2016)
We present a comprehensive nanoscale tribological characterization of single-layer graphene grown by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and transferred onto silicon oxide (SiO2) substrates. Specifically, the nanotribological ...
Atomic force microscopy: Methods and applications
This chapter provides an overview of atomic force microscopy, covering the fundamental aspects of the associated instrumentation and methodology as well as representative results from the literature highlighting a variety ...
