    • Frictional properties of quasi-two-dimensional materials from the Prandtl-Tomlinson model 

      Adeel, Shaharyar (Bilkent University, 2016-10)
      Tribology, the study of friction, is both an old theoretical problem in physics and an area of great practical importance. The invention of experimental instruments such as Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) has lead to the ...
    • Model description of friction on planar and buckled two dimensional materials 

      Uzlu, Hasan Burkay (Bilkent University, 2018-01)
      The law of friction has been known since the 18th century but yet, the development on the tribology field was established in the last decades mainly by the invention of frictional force microscope (FFM), which enabled ...
    • Theory of atomic scale friction 

      Buldum, Alper (Bilkent University, 1998)
      Friction is an old and important but at the same time very complex physical event. This thesis aims to develop an atomic scale theory of friction. VVe investigate various atomic processes and stick-slip motion by using ...
