Nano-Grooving on Copper by Nano-Milling and Nano-Cutting
This paper uses the molecular dynamics simulation to investigate the quality of nano-scale grooving on mono-crystalline copper by high-speed nano-milling and nano-cutting. The results reveal that nano-milling produces a high-quality nano-groove with smooth surfaces in comparison with a nano-cutting. It is also interesting to note that the machined workpiece subsurface can be free from dislocations.
