Broken nanodiamonds create dry lubricant


Controlled Enviroments

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory are combining nanodiamonds with two-dimensional molybdenum disulfide layers and breaking them to create a self-generating, very-low-friction dry lubricant that lasts longer than other lubricant materials. Using Mira...
