Nanotribology with the Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)

Nearly a quarter of the world’s annual energy consumption is spent overcoming friction and repairing damage caused by wear. Developing methods to reduce friction can thus reap massive economic and environmental benefits. The force sensitivity and high spatial resolution of the atomic force microscope (AFM) have made it indispensable for studying nanotribology.
