Using molecular dynamics simulations, we probe a suspended graphene layer by a diamond-like-carbon tip at various temperatures. The force acting on the tip in the sliding direction is measured to be negative at liquid-helium temperature. This negative force is found to be associated with a spontaneous lateral oscillation of the suspended graphene in favor of a low interface potential corrugation. Our hypothesis is that, at low temperature, this oscillation induces an important hidden…

Superlubricity of molybdenum disulfide subjected to large compressive strains

The friction between a molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) nanoflake and a MoS2 substrate was analyzed using a modified Tomlinson model based on atomistic force fields. The calculations performed in the

Negative friction coefficient in microscale graphite/mica layered heterojunctions

The results for the interface between graphite and muscovite mica heterojunction demonstrate a robust negative friction coefficient both in loading and unloading processes, and the underlying mechanism is a synergetic and nontrivial redistribution of water molecules at the interface, leading to larger density and more ordered structure of the confined subnanometer-thick water film.
