The deeper meaning of wear and tear

Abstract:
Friction between surfaces involves the forming, distorting and breaking of numerous contacts. Roland Bennewitz, a professor of experimental nanomechanics, investigates friction between individual atoms. He puts his work into perspective by pointing out that "of the billions of contacts between two sliding bodies, we study just one."
