She adds that the animals grip surfaces with microscopic hairs on the soles of their feet that make close enough contact to be attracted to the surface by the minute van der Waals forces between atoms.
As an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, she started a research project examining climbing gecko lizards, and ultimately discovered that geckos stick to surfaces using van der Waals forces.
There is a special non-bonded interaction between layers of a multi-walled carbon nanotube--the van der Waals interaction.
The design maximizes the effect of atomic-scale attractive forces, known as van der Waals forces, said Zhong Lin Wang at the Georgia Tech School of Materials Science and Engineering.
There is abundant evidence that van der Waals force can draw particles together progressively more around the perimeters of interpartical contacts, but their role in compaction remains unanswered.
According to the DLVO model proposed by Derjaguin and Landau (1941) and Verwey and Overbeek (1948), the net interaction between two surfaces/interfaces in a liquid medium is the arithmetic sum of van der Waals and electrostatic (electric double layer) forces.
