Graphene vs. MoS2: Which One Has Lower Friction?

26.08.2019 tribonet 724 Views

Two-dimensional (2D) materials, layered structures having atomic- to nano-scale thickness, have shown unique physical properties such as high in-plane stiffness combined with extremely low out of plane bending rigidity. 2D materials have been used in […]
