Molecular dynamics of carbon nanobearings

Abstract

A concept of nanoscale bearing structures utilizing nanocarbon materials is presented based on the prediction via molecular dynamics simulations. The proposed mechanism consists of a graphene layer, intercalated single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), and substrate graphenes. It is found that the friction against the movement of the uppermost graphene is smallest for the 1 SWNT model.
