Friction strength microscopy is a vital analytical software within the box of tribology at the nanometer-scale. The touch region among the probing tip and the pattern is lowered to a couple sq. nanometers, similar to the precise of a unmarried asperity touch. conventional suggestions, equivalent to friction coefficients, adhesion and elasticity and stick-slip are re-examined with this novel approach. New options dependent upon classical and quantum mechanics are investigated.
