    Tribofilms, resulting from tribochemical reactions involving lubricants, additives, and metal surfaces, are pivotal in reducing friction, preventing adhesion, and minimizing wear. This study investigates the tribological characteristics of textured surfaces in boundary lubrication, emphasizing the impact of surface texturing on tribofilm formation. Untextured surfaces manifest high friction coefficients and low wear owing to the development of thick tribofilms. However, debris accumulation impedes further tribochemical reactions, necessitating more energy for sliding and resulting in higher friction coefficients. Additionally, molybdenum dialkyl dithiocarbamate-derived MoS2 oxidation diminishes the expected lubrication effect. Textured surfaces exhibit lower friction coefficients and higher wear because the structure aids debris removal, promoting the formation of thinner tribofilms. Despite increased wear from solid-to-solid contact, textured surfaces facilitate an early fluid lubrication transition and enhance cavitation capacity, leading to reduced friction coefficients. We also consider the impact of sliding direction angles on friction coefficients, revealing that lower angles parallel to the grooves heighten friction, whereas higher angles enhance cavitation capacity. Unexpectedly, a 90° sliding direction angle increases the friction coefficients, attributed to MoS2 distribution in the tribofilms. These results provide crucial insights for optimizing lubrication strategies and enhancing wear resistance in boundary lubrication scenarios.

    We propose a novel electromagnetic energy-harvesting device (EHD) for structural health monitoring systems of transportation infrastructures. The EHD is embedded in the road surface and uses the tread force of cars as the input force when tires of cars pass over it. Because the input force is very fast, the proposed EHD can generate a large amount of energy. The footprint of the device is 20× 20 mm, its height is 7.5 mm, and its volume is 2.4 cm3. We measured the energy generated when a bicycle passed over the EHD 34 times at various speeds between 5 and 15 km/h. Subsequently, we obtained the regression curve from the results, which showed the relationship between the bicycle speed and generated energy, and estimated the electric energy generated by car at higher speeds. The results showed that, even though the size of the EHD was small, electric energies of 100 ?J, and 1.0 mJ could be generated at car speeds of 17 km/h, and 52 km/h, respectively.

    In this study, the dependence of the electric field between the magnetic disk and Si wafer, used as the counter surface, on the hydrocarbon smear generated from the diamond-like carbon (DLC) overcoat was investigated. As a result, the positive electric field from the disk to the Si wafer increased the amount of smear, and the negative field reduced it. The positive electric field was estimated to extract hydrocarbon ions from the thermal plasma toward the Si wafer, and the opposite field attracts the hydrocarbon ions to the DLC surface. Therefore, the electric field between the slider and disk possibly controls the smear generation from the DLC overcoat, which is heated by laser irradiation in the heat-assisted magnetic recording).

    A novel vibration-sensing device based on the giant magnetostrictive effect for a self-powered structural health monitoring system was developed. This device can produce a large voltage because the magnetostrictive rod, in principle, can generate a large variation in magnetic flux density, even when it is subjected to small and low-frequency vibrations of the bridge girder. Therefore, the device could function as a power generator to supply power to a storage battery, when it is not being used as a vibration sensor, to drive the electric circuit. A field test for the developed device was conducted. The experimental results confirmed that the device worked as a vibration sensor with considerable accuracy in detecting the natural frequency of the bridge, even when subjected to the intermittent load of passing cars.

    The formation of head smear from DLC films on magnetic disks was confirmed by a simulated heating experiment. DLC films of 100-nm thickness were prepared and heated on a hot plate in an environmental gas chamber. Smear on a silicon wafer placed 3 mm above the DLC surface was observed after heating of the DLC film. The smear amount was quantified using the carbon intensity of the smear measured by XPS. In air, the carbon concentration decreased with the heating temperature
    however, the carbon concentration increased with temperature in nitrogen. The carbon concentration of the smear in the air environment was smaller than that of nitrogen. As the result of comparison of smears on DLCs with various hydrogen concentrations, more decomposed gas is generated from the DLC film as the amount of hydrogen contained in the DLC increases, and this value increases at lower temperatures. This result suggests that DLC films with low hydrogen concentrations generate a smaller amount of decomposition gas than those with high hydrogen concentrations during heating. In addition, Raman spectra suggest that the DLC degraded by heating and the hydrocarbon gas-like materials were generated from the DLC film because the DLC films include carbon and hydrogen. Because fragments of 250–500 atomic mass units were observed in the TOF-SIMS spectra of smears, the smear is estimated to consist of a hydrocarbon of relatively high molecular weight.

    Because the diamond-like carbon (DLC) thin film overcoat on either a hard disk surface or an air bearing surface plays an important role in maintaining the reliability and durability of the head-disk interface, nanoscale DLC wear and degradation is a critical issue in heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR). The use of helium in hard disk drives (HDDs) has been developed and put into practical use to decrease air-induced structural vibrations, and temperature rise. In this study, fundamental experiments were conducted to understand the wear and related degradation characteristics of an ultra-thin DLC overcoat subjected to laser heating in both air and inert gas environments, using a pin-on-disk tester. An inert gas environment was simulated using helium gas. The experiments were conducted using DLC-coated glass pins and actual magnetic disks without a lubricant film. The differences in the wear and degradation characteristics of a DLC overcoat on the pin and disk surfaces between inert gas and air environments were investigated after wear tests were performed, primarily through Raman spectroscopy. We found that wear and graphitization of DLC films became greater with laser heating, while the friction coefficients between the pin and magnetic disk became markedly smaller. However, our tests also revealed that wear and graphitization of the DLC film were significantly less in an inert gas environment than in an air environment. This is because the wear observed in this experiment was predominantly due to a wear mechanism that is based on tribo-chemical oxidation.

  • Effect of laser heating on the smear behavior of pfpe lubricant films on magnetic disks in air and helium

    We investigated the smear characteristics upon laser heating in air and helium. We used magnetic disks coated with the perfluoropolyether (PFPE) lubricant D-4OH. The surface of the rotating disk was heated by laser irradiation using a pin-on-disk tester setup in a sealed chamber. The temperature was varied from 258°C to 540°C. When the lubricant film was heated by the laser, the lubricant evaporated from the surface of the disk by desorption or decomposition and adhered onto a hemispherical glass pin placed 5 μm above the disk surface as smears. The smears on the pin were analyzed using time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS). It was found that the amount of smear under exposure to helium gas is greater than that to air at high temperatures. In addition, this interesting result may be attributed not only to the different lubricant depletion mechanisms due to laser heating under the two environmental conditions, but also to the diamond-like carbon (DLC) thin film at a relatively low temperature of approximately 260°C.

    In this study, the smear by the lubricant and siloxane pickup at the laser heating in the heat assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) was evaluated using our developed noncontact pin-on-disk test. The smear area on the glass pin surface was measured on the disks with three types of different lubricant films prepared by changing the ultraviolet exposure condition, rinse condition, and lubrication process. The amount of siloxane adsorbed on disk surface relates with the siloxane wettability obtained from the contact angle of siloxane for disk surface and that increased as the siloxane wettability increases. On the other hand, the lubricant pickup increases as the physical and hydrogen bonding fractions increase. Overall, these data suggest that the sufficiently low surface free energy is needed by the lubricant film with only the chemical bonding fraction to reduce the lubricant and siloxane smear at the laser heating of HAMR, because the lubricant fractions of physical and hydrogen bonding increase the lubricant pickup and the much amount of siloxane adsorbs on disks with the large surface free energy.

    This paper examines the adsorption properties of the perfluoropolyether (PFPE) lubricant SNH2 with an ionic end-group (i.e., amine salt with a diphenylether moiety) for magnetic disk surfaces in heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) drives. For comparison, the well-known lubricant Z-tetraol was used as a reference material. Initially, strong interactions between the ionic end-groups of SNH2 and an applied electric field in the lubricant solution were established. The surface free energy and bonding ratio were also compared before and after ultraviolet (UV) light exposure to diamond-like carbon (DLC) disk surfaces onto, which the lubricants were coated, with their photoelectron currents measured during UV exposure. In addition, the structural characteristics of the SNH2 lubricant on the DLC surface were analyzed using a time-of-flight secondary mass spectroscopy. Furthermore, the thermal stabilities of the lubricant films were compared following laser heating. Overall, SNH2 showed higher adsorption to the DLC surface than Z-tetraol and interacted more strongly with the electric field in the lubricant solution. Furthermore, although SNH2 without UV exposure showed a large polar surface energy, this energy decreased considerably after UV exposure. This decrease is attributed to interactions between photoelectrons emitted from the DLC surface and the ionic bonds of the SNH2 molecules
    the cationic segments of the SNH2 ionic bonds dissociate, whereas the anionic main-chains chemisorb on the DLC surface at the electron holes generated from the ejected photoelectrons. SNH2 after the UV exposure showed high thermal stability because of its strong bonding to the DLC surface. Overall, these results demonstrate that a PFPE lubricant with ionic end-groups may be an effective lubricant for HAMR applications.

    The structural and molecular weight changes to lubricant picked up following laser heating in heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) were analyzed using time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS). The intensity of the ion mass fragments depended on the decomposition pathways and changed drastically, as did the average molecular weight of the picked-up lubricant as heating temperature increased. The fragment series formed by the dissociation of end groups with low molecular weights (CH3O+) showed a high intensity at temperatures under 300 °C, whereas at temperatures over 400 °C, the fragments series formed by the dissociation of the end-group component (C5H9O4F2+) increased. Overall, the results presented herein suggest that the chemical and thermal stability of the hydrocarbon terminal ends of lubricants should be improved in order to decrease depletion of the lubricant film and lubricant pickup by laser heating in HAMR.

    It is expected that, in the future, quadrotor helicopters (quadcopters) will be employed in many applications, several of which require the quadcopters to be extremely small. However, it is difficult for smaller quadcopters to achieve a sufficient lift force for flight because, with reduction in the propeller diameter, the lift force decreases more sharply than the mass does. To miniaturize flying robots, we developed a flapping-flight robot employing self-excited vibration based on dry friction, inspired by the flight mechanism of bees. The proposed structure uses a simple DC motor and is easy to control
    a large flapping angle can be obtained by operating at the resonant frequency using dry friction-based self-excited vibration with robustness. The designed flapping-flight robot is similar to a hornet in size with a body length of 5.4 mm and wingspan of 57.2 mm
    it weighs 970 mg, including the weight of a motor and battery.

    The tribocharge sensor to monitor the rotational speed and the temperature of ball bearing was fabricated and we studied the basic feasibility this tribocharge sensor. The tribocharge sensor was built up by the segmented electrode on rotor, the segmented electrode on stator. Electrode material is Cu of 35 μm thick and the material of base film is polyirude of 25 μm thick, This sensor was attached on the side on the ball bearing. This tribocharge sensor outputted the pulse voltage from the stator electrode. The output voltage was proportional to the rotational speed of ball bearing. The generated electric power was 0.2 μW at 2000 rpm, however, the electric power of 20 μW was expected by the reduction of PFTE film thic mess. On the other hand, the temperature of ball bearing was estimated by the envelope of negative voltage from the tribocharge sensor, and the estimated temperature approximately agreed with the temperature estimated by the friction force.

    We investigated the laser-heating-temperature dependence of the friction characteristics of magnetic disks coated with boundary lubricant films by using a pin-on-disk tester and discussed the fundamental characteristics observed. In the contact area of the glass pin and disk, we observed the area that showed a buildup and depletion of the lubricant film thickness. The amount of buildup and depletion increased with increasing heating temperature. It was found that the friction coefficient of each lubricant film initially decreased as the temperature increased. Thereafter, the minimum value of the friction coefficient of each test lubricant occurred at a specific temperature, resulting in an increase in the friction coefficient inversely as the temperature further increased. It was suggested that the specific temperature corresponds to the transition temperature at which the test lubricant film evaporates. In addition, it was also suggested that the thermal durability of the lubricant film improved because of ultraviolet treatment.

    Molecular alignment is key to achieving an ultra-low friction coefficient. We prepared associated carboxylic acids using oleic acid and p-pentylbenzoic acid via hydrogen bonding, involving a benzene ring and an eight-membered cyclic carboxylic acid in the molecules. We investigated frictional properties when these were added into a base oil and found that the associated carboxylic acids decreased the traction coefficient in EHL and boundary lubrication, although the viscosity increased. An in situ micro Fourier transform infrared spectroscope showed that both the eight-membered cyclic carboxylic acid and the benzene ring were oriented parallel to the shearing force, leading to the low friction coefficient.

    Viscoelastic (VE) materials are widely used in daily life. For the effective utilization of VE materials, it is necessary to know their viscoelasticity with accuracy over a wide range of frequencies, especially for high frequencies. Currently, the viscoelasticity of solid-state materials is directly measured only in the low-frequency range; for high frequencies, it is estimated based on the time-temperature superposition (TTS) principle. However, it is generally recognized that the TTS principle is suitable only for estimating the viscoelasticity of rheologically simple materials for temperatures within a limited range that is higher than the glass-transition temperature. In this paper, we propose a device that can directly measure the shear modulus and tan delta values of solid-state VE materials at high frequencies. We also propose a method for compensating for the shear deformation mode resonance of VE materials based on the mass of the moving part, to gain a more accurate understanding of viscoelasticity in the high-frequency range, and discuss the causes of errors in the compensation method. Finally, we report the VE properties of natural rubber (NR 65 IRHD) measured using the developed device and compensation method, and compare the measured results with those obtained using commercial VE measurement equipment.

    The thermal decomposition of a thin film of D-4OH lubricant under heating conditions on air-bearing surfaces, such as those found in magnetic recording devices, was investigated using time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectroscopy. The substrates used in this experiment were those of actual magnetic head sliders with diamond-like carbon (DLC) thin-film coatings. Two kinds of surfaces were prepared: an undisturbed DLC thin-film surface and an Al2O3 surface exposed by sputtering of the DLC thin film. Changes in the positive mass spectra as a result of heating confirmed that thermal decomposition of the D-4OH lubricant thin-film occurred, and that it was catalytically accelerated by Al2O3 at heating temperatures below 150 degrees C. This observation contrasts with the fact that the D-4OH lubricant thin film on the undisturbed DLC thin-film surface did not decompose.

    A nascent surface has high activity to catalyze the decomposition of lubricants under boundary lubrication conditions. The effects of sulfur-containing, nitrogen-containing, phosphorus-containing additives and phosphate-containing ionic liquid were investigated on the decomposition of synthetic hydrocarbon oil (multialkylated cyclopentane, MAC). The decomposition processes of the lubricants on the nascent surface of bearing steel AISI 52100 were investigated using a ball-on-disk friction tester in a vacuum chamber with a quadrupole mass spectrometer. Three parameters related to the decomposition process were observed: the induction period for the decomposition, the desorption rate of gaseous products, and the critical load for the activation of the decomposition. The order of efficiency of additives in extending the induction period was: sulfur-containing additive (S)<nitrogen-containing additive (N)<phosphorus-containing additive (P)<phosphate-containing ionic liquid (P-IL). The order of efficiency in increasing the critical load was: N<S<P<P-IL, and the order of efficiency in decreasing the decomposition rate was: N<S<P<P-IL. These results suggest that additives which can form iron salts (such as iron phosphate and iron sulfide) will deactivate the nascent surface, decreasing the decomposition rate and increasing the critical load.

    Effect of di-tert-dodecyl disulfide as an additive on decomposition of MAC oil on the nascent surface of bearing steel 52100 was investigated. After the removal of surface contamination layer, active sites were generated, on which tribochemical decomposition of MAC oil occurred. The additive prolonged the induction period of the decomposition. Hydrogen and gaseous hydrocarbons desorbed as tribochemical reaction products. Desorption rate of hydrogen and gaseous hydrocarbons increased proportionally with sliding velocity and linearly with the cube root of load. XPS analysis revealed tribochemical reaction between additive and nascent surface occurred, which induced formation of iron sulfide and decrease of activity of nascent surface. As a result, decomposition of MAC oil decreased correspondingly.

    Bearing failure is often accompanied by hydrogen embrittlement, which was caused by hydrogen diffusion in steel. The aim of this project was to declare the effect of DLC coating on preventing hydrogen diffusion. Deuterated lubricants were used to discriminate between the original hydrogen in steel and the hydrogen generated from lubricant decomposition. After friction tests of thrust bearings, the deuterium distribution on the cross section of the raceway was analyzed using Tof-SIMS. The highest concentration of deuterium was always near the raceway surface, and the concentration decreased gradually as the depth was increased. To protect steels against the ingress of hydrogen, the effect of DLC coating, which has a low diffusion coefficient of hydrogen, was studied. DLC reduced but did not completely prevent the ingress of hydrogen, which resulted from the reduction in the amount of hydrogen generated from the tribochemical and thermal decomposition of lubricants.

    In boundary lubrication, tribofilms are crucial for the management of wear and control of friction. Although a significant progress has been obtained in understanding the mechanisms of the tribofilms, the tribological properties were measured in the presence of lubricants. Strictly speaking, the measured friction forces were not the tribofilms, but the lubricants. This study focused on the tribological properties of tribofilms to make clear their antiwear and low friction mechanisms.
    Using an AFM, the tribofilms’ growth were studied. Periodic changes in film thickness were observed, suggesting that the tribofilm should be generated in a dynamic process of formation and destruction. Using a self-developed friction tester, the friction coefficient distribution was firstly obtained in a larger area. The friction coefficient in micro-scale did not depend on the surface morphology, but agreed well to the chemical images of the tribofilms.
