Contacts of surfaces at the atomic length scale are of fundamental interest for a better understanding of nanotribological processes, which are crucial in modern applications from nanoindentation or AFM/FFM to nanotechnologies applied in NEMS/MEMS.

A series of density functional theory (DFT) simulations was performed to investigate the approaching, contact and subsequent separation of two atomically flat surfaces consisting of various materials. Here, interfaces between Al and TiN slabs as well as Cu and C (diamond) slabs were chosen as model systems representing the interaction between soft and hard materials. The approaching and separation were simulated by moving one slab in discrete steps and allowing for relaxations after each step. Various configurations of the surfaces were analyzed at the interfaces. Additionally, the effect of oxygen and hydrogen at the Al and C surface, respectively, was investigated. The performed simulations revealed the influences of these aspects on the adhesion, equilibrium distance, charge distribution and material transfer. Particularly, oxygen and hydrogen showed their potential to suppress material transfer at the examined interfaces.
