Comment on “A Note on the Two-Spring Tomlinson Model”
A recent note by Lu et al. presented a theoretical study of atomic friction using a two-spring Tomlinson model. In this comment, we argue that the conclusion of the note can be understood in a simple manner, and that the discussion of the criterion for the onset of stick-slip is unnecessarily complicated and potentially misleading.
