A simple reversible process that changes friction in the nanoworld.
It’s possible to vary (even dramatically) the sliding properties of atoms on a surface by changing the size and “compression” of their aggregates: an experimental and theoretical study conducted with the collaboration of SISSA, Iom-Cnr, ICTP, the University of Padua, the University of Modena e Reggio Emilia, and the Istituto Nanoscienze of the CNR in Modena, has just been published in Nature Nanotechnology.
