    Abstract : The nanotribology, adhesion and related interfacial properties of biomacromolecular systems have been studied.  The aim was to elucidate the role of physisorbed and chemically grafted bio-polymers implicated as mediators for cellulose based processing and material design. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nanotribology, Surface Interactions and Characterization An AFM Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rubén Álvarez-Asencio; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : When two surfaces achieve contact, then contact phenomena such as adhesion, friction and wear can occur, which are of great interest in many disciplines, including physics, physical chemistry, material chemistry, and life and health sciences. These phenomena are largely determined by the nature and magnitude of the surface forces such as van der Waals, capillary and hydration forces. READ MORE

  3. 3. Low-friction and wear-resistant carbon nitride coatings for bearing components grown by magnetron sputtering

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Konstantinos Bakoglidis; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbon nitride; magnetron sputtering; physical vapor deposition; coatings; bearings; rolling contact fatigue; adhesion; friction; wear; transmission electron microscopy; scanning electron microscopy; x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy; coatings tribology; nanotribology;

    Abstract : The scope of this thesis is the investigation of magnetron sputtered carbon nitride coatings suitable for roller bearing components. The research field of tribology of bearings focuses on minimizing friction between components by improving the lubricants. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of Nanowire Friction using AFM-based Manipulation

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Gabriela Conache; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nanomanipulation; AFM; Nanowires; Nanotribology; Friction; Nanotechnology.;

    Abstract : In this thesis we present friction studies on InAs nanowires pushed laterally across surfaces by an AFM tip. The contact length in the direction of movement is of the order of a few tens of nanometers, and is thus comparable to that found in existing point-contact studies, but perpendicular to the motion the wire can be several microns in length.

  5. 5. Ionic liquids The solid-liquid interface and surface forces

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Nicklas Hjalmarsson; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ionic liquids; solid-liquid interface; surface forces; nanotribology; atomic force microscopy; quartz crystal microbalance; Jonvätskor; gränsskiktet mellan fasta ytor och vätskor; ytkrafter; nanotribologi; atomkraftsmikroskopi; kvartskristallmikrovåg; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Ionic liquids (ILs) present new approaches for controlling interactions at the solid-liquid interface. ILs are defined as liquids consisting of bulky and asymmetric ions, with a melting point below 373 K. Owing to their amphiphilic character they are powerful solvents but also possess other interesting properties. READ MORE
