Numbers of analytical tools have been used for the study of tribology. However, the surface analytical tools applicable to the study of micro and nanotribology are limited and require high vertical and spatial resolutions as well as high time resolution. The information of chemical bonds at contact area is important to understand nanotribological phenomena. According to a scale rule, the ratio of surface force Fs to inertia force Fi is inversely related to the square of the size of tribological elements as formulated, where γ, a, ρ and L are surface energy of liquid, acceleration, density and size...
