Scaling-up SuperLubricity into Persistence

Project description

Research paves the way for near-frictionless materials

Around one fourth of the global energy losses result from friction and wear. The EU-funded SSLiP project will rely on a new concept called superlubricity, where solid, atomic-sized 2D materials can slide across one another experiencing virtually no friction. Through careful design of colloidal particles coated in these 2D materials, researchers will be able to control the carrier fluid and the mechanical properties of the colloids, as well as their sliding and collective behaviour. SSLiP will get superlubricity off the ground, extending laboratory research to practical applications. Scaling up the idea should help drastically reduce friction losses in passenger cars and help hard drives perform better.
