Physics and Chemistry of Micro-Nanotribology

Editor(s): Jianbin Luo, Yuanghong Hu, Shizhu Wen

This new ASTM monograph presents the principles and applications of tribology in micro- nano-scale and discusses some of the challenges faced by tribilogists since the development of new manufacturing techniques for electronic products. It covers a broad range of topics on micro-nanotribology, with emphasis on the physical and chemical aspects and on bridging fundamental studies and applications.

Topics include:
• Experimental methods and measure techniques
• Fluid film lubrication
• Molecular film lubrication
• Gas lubrication in nano-gap
• Mixed lubrication in nano-scale
• Applications of tribology in magnetic record systems
• Chemical mechanical polishing of ultra-smooth surfaces

This is a valuable resource for tribologists, mechanical engineers, lubrication engineers, and material scientist and engineers.
