Understanding friction at the nanoscale may lead to a better understanding of earthquakes and also to the development of coatings to protect materials against wear in harsh environments like outer space. Dr. Robert Carpick, professor and chair, mechanical engineering and applied mechanics at the University of Pennsylvania, elaborates on the current state of his team's research on the origins and applications of friction at the nanoscale.
