This article provides an overview of the latest research developments on binary and ternary oxide coatings that have the potential to be used as solid lubricants at elevated temperatures. The review focuses on understanding the major mechanisms that lead to a reduction in friction and/or wear in high temperature lubricious oxides. Changes in the structural, chemical, and electronic properties of these oxides as a function of temperature will be correlated to their mechanical and tribological performance using a range of experimental tools in addition to modeling based on ab initio calculations and molecular dynamics simulation methods. This review also includes a discussion of the industrial applications of these coatings as well as of potential improvements to the coating design and other anticipated future developments.
