Lubricants have been applied in space technology to prolong the service life and improve the reliability for moving parts. In space, the lubricants perhaps meet various environmental factors, such as hard vacuum, extreme temperature, temperature cycling, atomic oxygen, ultraviolet, proton, electron,
The study of the diffusion behavior in liquid metals is an important subject of condensed physics research. The diffusion coefficient of liquid metals is a key parameter to describe the mass transfer phenomena. Accurate diffusion coefficients are important for the studies of fundamental materials sc
Additive manufacturing in space has shown obvious advantages in several fields such as on-ground or in-situ manufacturing, space supplies,reducing spares and transportation, emergency response and promoting deep space exploration. This paper analyzes and discusses the application requirements and mo
With the rapid development of modern industry, the dual threats of the depletion of nonrenewable energy and environmental pollution caused by petroleum-based polymers motivate utilization of naturally occurring polymers to create new “green” materials. Cellulose, as the most abundant natural polymer
