Submission + - Mass Can Be 'Created' Inside Graphene ( 1

planckscale writes: At the Saudi Center for Theoretical Physics in Saudi Arabia, physicists say the amazing properties of graphene now include the ability to create mass, according to a new prediction. The paper states that by folding the [graphene] sheet into a tube [fermions] acquire non-zero effective mass as they move along the tube axis. Could the ability to trivially create mass (or anti-mass) allow for exotic propulsion methods to be explored?
