ASTM International’s new Mongraph 7, “Physics and Chemistry of Micro-Nanotribology,” presents the principles and applications of tribology in micro-nano-scale and discusses some of the challenges faced by tribologists since the development of new manufacturing techniques for electronic products.
The monograph 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; and chemical mechanical polishing of ultra-smooth surfaces. This is a valuable resource for tribologists, mechanical engineers, lubrication engineers and material scientist and engineers.
