Voltage loss in cable bacteria

An international research group has shed new light on cable bacteria. Using laser light, researchers have followed electrons as they travel through the current-conducting bacteria, and on the basis of the electrical potential in the bacteria, they have calculated that the bacteria because of voltage loss cannot function efficiently at depths…
