Controlled lateral and perpendicular motion of atoms on metal surfaces
(Bilkent University, 1994)
Nanoscale modification of matter has been the subject of interest. Recently, several experimental studies have demonstrated that by using a scanning tunneling microscope one can translate atoms on metal surfaces to a ...
Theory of atomic scale friction
(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 ...
