Bruce Hinds (William T. Bryan Professor in Materials Engineering at the University of Kentucky) discovered how to pump fluids through nanotubes just as fast as Nature can pump them through cell walls. In January 2012, top-tier journal “Nature Nanotechnology” featured this discovery. Hinds’s nanoscale ion pumps could soon be used to capture energy, purify water, [...]
