News – our cQOM research in the press
Zurich, 7 May 2015
Thanks to the paper, “Adhesion and friction in mesoscopic graphite contacts”, appearing in the peer reviewed journal of Science, our partners at IBM Zürich have not only uncovered the quantitative secret to understanding friction in such materials, like graphite, they even invented a way to measure it. Graphite materials are very promising for MEMS applications and these findings will someday help other scientists design energy efficient MEMS devices.
