  • Quantum Friction Explains Water’s Freaky Flow

    Scientific American - 02/22/2022

    For example, understanding flows through carbon nanotubes could improve water desalination processes, says Jeffrey Sokoloff, a physicist at Northeastern University who was not part of the study. “There’s a lot of friction experienced by the water as it goes through the filters. So knowing that you have these [carbon] nanotubes that are very low friction, that could be a very good way of doing desalination,” he explains.
