Title: Atomic-level stick-slip
Published: June 28, 2013
Abstract: Atomic level stick-slip refers to the behavior of a sliding interface, usually an atomic force microscope tip sliding along a crystalline surface, whereby the tip sticks and then slips laterally with respect to the surface in a periodic fashion. The periodicity coincides with the surface lattice.
