    It is widely believed that Amontons’ law of friction holds well in various systems. Here we show based on a numerical calculation and analytical theory that Amontons’ law breaks in viscoelastic materials under certain condition due to the precursor slip prior to the bulk sliding. It is also shown that instead of Amontons’ law new friction law holds, which states that the static friction coefficient decreases as a power functionof load with the power −1/3. The new friction law is verified by the experiment employing polymethyl-methacrylate. The relation between the critical length of the precursor and the static friction coefficient predicted by numerical calculation and analytical theory is also verified.

    The effect of the interaction among heat, fluid pressure and inelastic pore creation on dynamic earthquake slip process is investigated. The diversity of dynamic earthquake slip can be explained by the single framework in a unified way, which includes three nondimensional parameters. In particular, two of them are found to govern the system behavior without fluid flow. Two qualitatively different slip behaviors, acceleration and spontaneous slip cessation, have been found and the function determining which case appears is derived analytically. The constitutive relationship between the frictional stress and the slip is also obtained. The least energy required to arrest the slip is related to the minimum value of the inelastic porosity change for the spontaneous slip cessation case.

    A new measurement method for clarifying friction loss in boundary lubrication is introduced. Optical-fiber-based method, called fiber wobbling method, uses a ball-ended optical fiber as a sliding probe. A vibrating probe slides a thin liquid film and friction force is measured from the amplitude and phase change due to friction loss. The probe is soft in the lateral direction and rigid in the normal one, which can provide high sensitive friction force measurement with accurate gap control. This method revealed that friction of nanometer-thick liquid lubricant films showed dry-friction-like energy dissipation, where the friction force did not depend on the sliding velocity. The result suggested that the slip between the liquid and solid is important for clarifying the boundary lubrication phenomena.

    Molecular origin of friction is related to the dissipation of the molecular motion energy responses to the external field produced by the sliding motion. Molecular dynamics simulations are suitable method to describe the process. In this article we review a history of molecular dynamics simulation related to tribology and show the “tribo-molecular dynamics” established in 1990s. If the major energy dissipation mode is restricted to the molecular motion in the vicinity of the surface, it is boundary lubrication and fully described by the simulation. In usual case of hydrodynamic lubrication or solid lubrication, however, molecular simulation can not describe the full process due to the large correlation length or low frequency vibration of the system. The understanding of the restriction is important in practical use of the method.

    Supported nanoclusters have attracted considerable attention in recent years, by virtue mainly of their unique size-dependent properties. Various novel approaches have been developed to create nano-clusters with different functionalities on surfaces. In this study, we propose an alternative approach to the assembly of various nano-clusters atom-by-atom using the tip of a scanning probe microscope (SPM) at room temperature. Half-unit cells of the Si(111) - (7×7) surface serve as nanospace (NS) arrays to confine individual adsorbates diffusing on the surface. This method is based on the transfer of single diffusing atoms among NSs by the chemical interaction force with the SPM tip. The clusters with predetermined compositions, such as Au12, Ag12, and Au5Pb, can be formed by collecting single atoms from the surrounding NSs into a pre-defined NS with successive atom manipulations.

    Exfoliation and adhesion are a daily ordinary phenomenon. However, these exhibit irregular behaviors on the atomic-and molecular-scale. In this article, we introduce that a carbon nanotube exhibits atomic-scale movements on a graphite substrate, in which stick-slip sliding occurs at the atomic scale while maintaining AB-stacking registry with the graphite substrate. It is expected that the study on exfoliation and adhesion provides control of friction, a stronger adhesion and an easier exfoliation than those of a gecko foot and applications for nanomachine and biomolecular motor.

    The aim of this study was to determine the effect of plasma irradiation, which is used in plasma medicine on biological tissues (cells). We used phospholipids, the main components of the cell membrane, namely, phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylglycerol (PG), and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE). Reference samples of the three phospholipids were irradiated with an atmospheric-pressure argon (Ar) plasma jet for 5s. The phospholipids irradiated with a plasma jet were separated by thin-layer chromatography (TLC). The TLC results indicated that several degradation products were obtained for PC and PG but not for PE after plasma jet irradiation. One of the degradation products obtained from PC was identified as lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) and one of the products obtained from PG was identified as lysophosphatidylglycerol (LPG) by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry. Therefore, PC and PG are degraded into their respective lysophospholipids by plasma jet irradiation, which disrupts the cell membrane.

    世界の陸地面積の3割を占める森林は巨大な炭素プールであり,温室効果ガスの吸収源と見なされています。しかし環境変化は森林そのものへも影響するものであり,森林の変動メカニズムや炭素貯留量などを解明する研究が進められ,地球温暖化対策において期待される森林の働きが解明されつつあります。その一方で,途上国では開発行為によって熱帯林等が消失し,それが温室効果ガスの排出源になっています。そのため,気候変動枠組条約締約国会合(COP)等の国際的な検討体制では,途上国の森林開発を抑制し,熱帯林等の保全を進めるため「REDDプラス」という考え方が注目されています。先進国による経済支援や様々な技術支援を進めることが,地球規模の温室効果ガスの排出削減に必要であるとの認識のもと,国際的な枠組みとしてその具体化に向けた検討が進められています。
