NOW LISTEN ATTENTIVELY

A lion was sleeping in his den. A mouse ran into the den. It ran up onto the lion’s head and sat on its paw. The lion woke up. It was very angry. It grabbed the mouse in its mighty paw.

“How dare you wake me up? I’ll kill you for this!” roared the lion.

The mouse was very scared. It said, “Please don’t eat me. Please let me go. I did not mean to wake you up. If you let me go, who knows, maybe one day I will be able to help you.”

When the lion heard this, it laughed. It thought it was a great joke. How could a skinny little mouse help the King of Beasts? But he let the little mouse go free, and the mouse ran as fast as it could out of the den.

A few days later, the mouse was out looking for food. It came upon the lion caught up in a big net. The net was a trap, set by hunters. The lion struggled to get free. But the more it struggled, the tighter the net became.

“Lie still,” said the mouse to the lion.

Then the mouse bit a small hole in the net with its sharp teeth. The mouse chewed and chewed and chewed. Soon the small hole was big enough for the lion to put its paw through. Soon the lion had two paws free. The mouse kept chewing and chewing at the net, and soon the lion was free from the trap.

“There,” said the mouse, “that’s how a little mouse can help a great lion.”

s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

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

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.
