Uncovering the secrets of friction on graphene

more »
Graphene has been the subject of widespread research, in large part because of its unique combination of strength, electrical conductivity, and chemical stability. But despite many years of study, some of graphene’s fundamental properties are still not well-understood. Now, using powerful computer simulations, researchers have made significant strides in understanding that process.
