Abstract
Surfaces Research proposes a Phase II STTR program to conduct further research with ionic liquid lubricants based upon our successful Phase I research. We have assembled a team for fundamental surface science and chemistry, tribology, microtribology, and molecular modeling to conduct this research. Additional team members will provide aerospace mechanism information and permit collaboration with Air Force Laboratories. Industrial commercialization collaborations for electrical contact lubrication and for ionic liquid synthesis are underway.
