A study is made of the factors that contribute to the energy of mica-mica, silica-silica, and mica-silica interfaces in the presence of moist atmospheres. Energies are measured using brittle fracture and contact adhesion techniques. Both “virgin” and “healed” interfaces are investigated, with special attention on the latter. The fracture and adhesion data overlap, reflecting a common underlying separation process by “sharp-crack propagation.” The study identifies several contributors to the… Expand
