Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The influence of molecular conformations on tribological responses is explored using three parallel approaches. Dielectric measurement of fluids confined within molecularly-thin films is also presented. Finally, the effect of long-chain polymeric additives when immersed in a solution of smaller molecules is studied.
