Nano-Lube magnetic bearing

  1. Jan 7, 2005 #1
    Dear Folks:

    The line in this article about testers being " simply unable to create enough friction in the lubricant to produce measurable damage - even when trial durations were increased severely beyond specifications", makes this sound as good as a magnetic bearing.

    i saw something about nano tubes and buckey balls recently , it occured to me that it would make an excellent lubricant..they even had nano disks .. anyway the nano tubes are supposed to be the stiffist, must rigid substance known to man..
