Nanotechnologies to Fight Friction
Model of friction

Scientists from Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute develop unique materials for reducing friction of moving components of various mechanisms.
      Researchers expect nanotechnologies to be a breakthrough in this field, because these technologies allow making materials with necessary properties.
      Russian engineers developed a new laser technique, which forms nanostructural coatings based upon carbon and dichalcogenides of transition metals. The technique forms extremely thin composite coatings (3-250 nanometers) and is perfect for controlling atomic and chemical composition of desired material.
      Researchers found out that the thinner the coating is, the better it protects materials from friction.
