Superlubricity: A new era in solid lubrication technology?

The word superlubricity was coined by Motohisa Hirano in the early 1990s. The Japanese scientist theoretically predicted the existence of a physical state where sliding friction between two contacting surfaces virtually vanishes under certain conditions. Hirano conducted wear friction studies using an atomic force microscope, a tool that allows the measurement of surface lateral forces […]
