Surface stress is widely used to characterize the adsorption effect on the mechanical response of nanomaterials and nanodevices. However, quantitative relations between continuum-level descriptions of surface stress and molecular-level descriptions of adsorbate interactions are not well established. In this paper, we first obtain the relations between the adsorption-induced surface stress and the van der Waals and Coulomb interactions in terms of the physical and chemical interactions between… CONTINUE READING
