Surface topographical and physical properties are very important in the reliability of thin film applications or micro/nano-scale devices, which include rough surfaces in contact during normal operation. These properties directly affect the adhesion, friction, wear, and failure mechanisms of miniature systems. To have more physical insights into rough surface contact behaviors, researchers have developed various outstanding static contact models and compared the results to experimental measurements. Even though the model predictions are in general agreement with the experimental measurements, there is still relatively big difference between them, which in some applications can limit the usage of the models to estimate the contact behaviors of the systems.REFERENCES Albrecht, T.
