This same hybrid surface engineering process was used to demonstrate adhesion and friction reduction. Microscale adhesion and friction tests were conducted on flat (smooth) and processed silicon surfaces with a low elastic modulus thermoplastic rubber (Santoprene) probe that allowed a large enough contact area to observe the feature size effect. Both adhesion and friction force of the processed surfaces were reduced comparing to that of the flat surfaces.Experimental details of the developed process are given in Appendix A. Appendix B is the matlab codes used in Chapter 3. ... 2 T. R. Thomas, Rough surfaces (Longman Group Limited, New York, 1982). 3 J. A. Greenwood and J. J. Wu, anbsp;...
