A major challenge at stake is whether and how to harness the strange properties of fluid transport at nanoscale to reproduce or mimick some of these functionalities?
In this talk, I will discuss various experimental and theoretical results that we obtained recently in my team on the transport of water and ions in ultra-confinement. I will in particular discuss the water-carbon couple, which highlights a variety of exotic transport properties. I will focus on two such phenomena: the emergence of memory in quasi–two-dimensional water channels and the development of elementary ion-based computing, with basic forms of Hebbian learning; and the nearly frictionless flows of carbon nanotubes and its quantum roots.
