  • Subset of the Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology addressed to a select audience
  • Ideal for teaching and self-study purposes
  • Focuses on the areas of nanomechanics and nanotribology
  • With a foreword by physics Nobel laureate Gerd Binnig
The comprehensive reference and textbook serves as a timely, practical introduction to the principles of nanotribology and. Assuming some familiarity with macroscopic tribology, the book comprises chapters by internationally recognized experts, who integrate knowledge of the field from the mechanics and materials-science perspectives. They cover key measurement techniques, their applications, and theoretical modelling of interfaces, each beginning their contributions with macro- and progressing to microconcepts.
