Title: Friction and work function oscillatory behavior for an even and odd number of layers in polycrystalline MoS 2

We report on a new oscillatory behavior of nanoscopic friction in continuous polycrystalline MoS 2 films for an odd and even number of atomic layers, related to the different in-plane polarization of crystalline grains and different capability of absorbing charged molecules.
