Nanotribology has been in existence as a recognized discipline for roughly 20 years, with the appreciation of the importance of atomistic mechanisms of tribology existing long before. In this paper, we briefly review why nanotribology is important for advancing the science of tribology in general, and we also highlight emerging applications where nanotribological research is critical.
