3S - Switchabel Superlubricity

Project: Research project

Project Details


Friction causes enormous energy losses. One promising way to minimise these losses is based on super-lubricity, a state of extremely reduced friction. I am researching ways of switching superlubricity on and off in a targeted manner. To do this, I combine computational methods of quantum chemistry with artificial intelligence to identify the crucial material properties that bring about superlubricity. This makes it possible to save energy, extend the service life of machines and thus improve sustainability.
