    • Reliable measurement of slip using colloid probe atomic force microscopy 

      Zhu, Liwen
      Published 2012-08-01
      Recent research has shown that Newtonian liquids can slip at solid surfaces in confined geometries, which contradicts the classical no-slip boundary condition in which the liquid is stationary at the solid surface. The ...
