Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

Tribology: Design Rules for Extremely Low Coefficients of Friction

15-Jan-2019

The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity ...
