Try this if you dare

Mission Impossible?

There are two secret agents, 005 and 007. Each is trying to get his own top scientist out of Slobodia. Agent 005’s man is Dr C. Hoo Dares; 007 is watching Dr B. A. Fraid. To get out of Slobodia secretly they must cross the Purple River, or they will be caught. No one can swim.

A small boat awaits them, hidden along the Slobodian riverbank. The problem is it will carry only two people at a time! To complicate matters, neither scientist dares to be with the other’s agent because science is so hush-hush. (Of course, it is all right when his own agent is there.) For instance, Dr Dares couldn’t possibly row across the river alone with 007.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?

Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
