The permeation of ions through narrow water-filled channels is essential to life and of rapidly-growing importance in technology. Reaching an understanding of the mechanisms underlying the permeation process requires an interdisciplinary approach, where ideas drawn from physics are of particular importance and have brought encouraging progress in recent years. This Introduction sets into context the several ground-breaking papers presented in the Entropy Special Issue on “The Physics of Ionic Conduction in Narrow Biological and Artificial Channels.
