• ### Novel Nanocarbon Materials

Ultrananocrystalline Diamond and Graphene Films
• ### Slippery when dry

Anyone who has ever taken their car in for an oil change recognizes the importance of reducing the friction that arises when steel touches steel.
• ### Direct Synthesis of Reduced Graphene Oxide Films on Dielectric Substrates (ANL-IN-14-110)

A method for coating a dielectric substrate with a R-GO film includes positioning the dielectric substrate in a chamber which is purged with a first gas to adjust a pressure of the chamber to a first pressure
• ### Superlubricating Graphene and Graphene Oxide Films (ANL-IN-11-056)

A system and method for forming at least one of graphene and graphene oxide on a substrate and an opposed wear member.
• ### Nanotechnology moves from the clean room to the classroom

For years, scientists have been creating and tweaking extremely tiny materials atom by atom in special clean rooms scrubbed of debris. Students needed a Ph.D. to join the club and study those tiny materials in a field known as nanoscience.
• ### Argonne-developed technology for producing graphene wins TechConnect National Innovation Award

A method that significantly cuts the time and cost needed to grow graphene has won a 2017 TechConnect National Innovation Award.
• ### Diamond proves useful material for growing graphene

Graphene is the stuff of the future.
• ### Argonne-developed technology for achieving superlubricity wins 2016 TechConnect National Innovation Award

Friction is the enemy of efficiency, and since the days of the Egyptian pharaohs, people have sought ways to get rid of it.
• ### Slip sliding away: Graphene and diamonds prove a slippery combination

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have found a way to use tiny diamonds and graphene to give friction the slip, creating a new material combination that demonstrates the rare phenomenon of superlubricity.”
