Magnetene: Graphene-like 2D material leverages quantum effects to achieve ultra-low friction

Posted by in categories: engineering, quantum physics

A team of researchers from University of Toronto Engineering and Rice University have reported the first measurements of the ultra-low-friction behavior of a material known as magnetene. The results point the way toward strategies for designing similar low-friction materials for use in a variety of fields, including tiny, implantable devices.
