|In this work, we report on the nanotribological properties of three fcc metals (Ag, Cu, and Ni). Both friction and wear were measured by atomic force microscopy with a stiff diamond coated cantilever. Friction forces were recorded during successive contact imaging as a function of the normal force. For all three samples, the friction force vs. normal force plot exhibit two regimes corresponding to wear-less friction and wear, respectively. Wear and its on-set were further characterized by topography images cross-correlation recorded during friction measurements and non-contact imaging of the area scanned during friction measurements. While the normal force at the on-set of wear scales with the hardness and the melting point of the respective metals, the amount of wear and size of generated debris do not follow this dependence. Instead Cu exhibits the larger amount of ploughing and the larger friction coefficient, followed by Ag and Ni. We discuss these findings based on the hardness normalized by the shear modulus and the surface energy at the melting point.|
