Giessibl, Franz J. and Herz, Markus and Mannhart, Jochen (2002) Friction traced to the single atom. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) 99 (19), pp. 12006-12010.
Friction is caused by dissipative lateral forces that act between macroscopic objects. An improved understanding of friction is therefore expected from measurements of dissipative lateral forces acting between individual atoms. Here we establish atomic resolution of both conservative and dissipative forces by lateral force microscopy, presenting the resolution of atomic defects. The interaction ...
