New DOE-funded project: metal oxide anti-wear coatings


The US Department of Energy has funded a $1.9M grant for a team including the Carpick Lab at UPenn, where lab members Parker LaMascus and Dr. Pranjal Nautiyal will work with the team to develop high-performance coatings for gears and bearings operating in harsh environments. LaMascus and Nautiyal will specialize in rapid testing and material characterization, as they partner with Pixelligent LLC and collaborators at Argonne National Labs, ExxonMobil, and elsewhere. Their work will advance the commercial readiness of nanoparticle technologies for next-generation, eco-friendly lubricants.
