TS.VI.F

Self-lubricant materials: basic mechanisms and applications from the macro scale down to the micro and nano scale
 
The symposium is aimed to the introduction and discussion of recent advances on self-lubricant materials. These materials i) are of interest for a number of applications where the conventional fluid lubrication does not apply, and ii) are challenging for the basic processes involved in the solid lubrication. symposium will focus on carbon-based materials (graphene, diamond-like carbon, ...) and metal dichalcogenides (molybdenum disulfide, …). Emphasis will be on the identification of different friction and wear mechanisms operating at the macro and at the micro-nano scale, in different operating environments (vacuum, controlled atmosphere, ambient conditions) and for different architectures of the materials. Possible tribochemistry effects will be also discussed.
Morphological, structural, chemical-stoichiometric characterizations, and functional tribological tests of the materials will be presented through advanced “state-of-the-art” multi-scale analytical techniques.
Finally, during the symposium, strategies and channels for an effective technological transfer to applications over a wide scale range will be discussed.
