Simply sliding: The study of nanoscale tribology offers great potential in the fields of friction, wear, and lubrication. By considering a variety of hexagonal layered materials, including graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, and molybdenum disulfide, it is shown how a simple geometrical parameter, named the “registry index”, can capture the interlayer sliding energy landscape (see picture) as calculated by using advanced electronic structure methods as well as experimentally measured frictional behavior.
