Theoretical investigation of the anticorrugation effects on the tribological properties of the Xe/Cu interface.


We present a molecular dynamics study of the slip time and static friction for a slab of Xe deposited on a slab of Cu. To put in evidence the role played by the phonon field of the two blocks, we compare results obtained with a substrate formed by fixed atoms with one formed by mobile atoms. In the last case the scattering between Xe and Cu mobile atoms is… (More)
