Crystallization in Thin Liquid Films Induced by Shear

Akbulut, Mustafa; Chen, Nianhuan; Maeda, Nobuo; Israelachvili, Jacob N; Grunewald, Torsten; Helm, Christiane


It is known that the thin-film structure of confined fluids and solids can be changed when the confining surfaces are sheared. Positional and orientational short- or long-range reordering can occur that often have no bulk counterparts. These multilayer, monolayer, or even sub-monolayer effects are important for understanding adhesion and friction processes, but they have proved difficult to measure, partly due to a lack of experimental techniques and partly to their apparent subtle dependence...[Show more]
