Abstract

The tribological properties of onion-like carbon (OLC) have been investigated on a nanometer scale using an ultra-high vacuum atomic force microscope. In addition, the tribological properties of OLC added to oil were investigated. A viewpoint of the practical application of OLC as a lubricating additive to oil, under both experimental conditions, OLC showed low friction. In the latter case, OLC transformed into a low friction material with long life, and appears to be a promising material as nanolubricant.
