Dr. Zahra Gholamvand spoke about 2D materials and application for frictionless contacts at the "Atoms to Galaxies" event in Pint Of Science public festival
The SSLiP project uses 2D materials to make surfaces super slippery, reducing friction and wear between rubbing surfaces. This has potential applications in creating more efficient and longer-lasting technology, reducing energy consumption and wear costs, and promoting sustainability. By investigating different types of 2D materials and integrating them into real-world applications, the SSLiP project is an exciting example of how scientific research can benefit society. By developing new materials and techniques, researchers are helping to create a more efficient, sustainable, and innovative future.
