Water Flows in Carbon Nanochannels, from Carbon Memories to Quantum Friction

The emerging field of nanofluidics explores the molecular mechanics of fluids. This world of infinitesimal fluidics is the frontier where the continuum of fluid dynamics meets the atomic nature of matter, or even its quantum nature. Nature fully exploits the fluidic oddities at the nanoscale and it is capable of breath-taking technological feats using a fluidic circuitry made of multiple biological channels, such as ionic pumps, proton engines, ultra-selective pores, stimulable channels, ...
