Abstract : This report describes the second three months of work on an investigation of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) as a solid lubricant. The objective, scope, and approach of the program are briefly reviewed. Preliminary compression experiments on machined pressurized compacts of MoS2 have been made. A modified inner sleeve for the compacting die and the apparatus for conducting the various measurements are in the fabrication stage. (Author)
