Abstract

The relationship between the interlayer structure of octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane (OMCTS) lubricant and the atomic structure of confining mica surfaces is examined by Monte Carlo simulation. Results exhibited a sufficient coupling between OMCTS and mica surfaces causing a fluid lattice distortion. The coupling resulted in a nonzero shear stress which is in good agreement with experimental shear stress results.
