Does nanoconfinement affect the interaction between two materials placed in contact?

12-Jun-2018

Scientists show that is it possible to estimate how nanoconfinement affects the number of contacts formed by two materials placed in intimate contact and, hence, the interfacial interactions. They considered wafers of silicon, as those largely used in microelectronics, coated by thin polymer ...
