Direct visualization of cavitation and damage in ultrathin liquid films.

Abstract

The Surface Forces Apparatus technique was used to observe, at the nanoscopic level, the rapid growth and disappearance of vapor cavities between two moving solid surfaces while simultaneously monitoring their effects on the deformations and damage produced on the surfaces. Both approach-separation and shear motions were studied. In both geometries, as the… (More)
