Title: Argonne News Brief: Self-Healing Diamond-Like Carbon Coating Could Revolutionize Lubrication

Argonne scientists discovered a technique to create a layer of diamond-like carbon on the surfaces between moving parts. This could change the future of lubrication—potentially making engines more efficient, more reliable, and even greener (by reducing heavy metal additives needed in engine oils.)
