Description of Research
Dr. Streator is investigating the lubrication problems of the magnetic head-disk interface. Other research areas in which he is engaged include the study of the low-pressure rheology of nanometer-scale liquid films; measurement of limiting capillary forces with thin liquid films; and modeling friction at the molecular level.
