Abstract :

Friction between solid surfaces is an important phenomenon in everyday life.

Without it, even something as simple as holding a piece of paper would be impossible.

While humans have had to deal with friction since prehistoric times, we actually

understand little about the process on nanometer scales that give rise to it.

In this colloquium, I will attempt to give an overview of the type of research that is done

in the field of fundamental nantrobilogy, i.e. the fundamental study of friction on

small scales, using examples from my own and other people's work.
