Argonne-developed technology for achieving superlubricity wins 2016 TechConnect National Innovation AwardMay 26, 2016

A graphene-nanodiamond solution for achieving superlubricity developed at Argonne National Laboratory has won a 2016 TechConnect National Innovation Award. Using miniscule diamonds wrapped in graphene, friction can be reduced to almost zero value. This superlubricity effect is a very enticing prospect for industries making everything from computer hard drives to wind turbines.
