Nanotechnology/Electrons and photons
At room temperature, there is a singular bond holding the oxygen atoms together with two electrons, (for example HO-OH). A 'correct' nm (nano-meter) photon hitting an oxygen's electron will give the electron enough energy to 'disappear' from the bond. This leaves one electron in the bond.
Is there enough energy in the 'one' electron to maintain the bond?
Hi Bob, I don't think you scales are right. There are certainly no nm photons or we would have seen them already. Electrons swap and change positions all the time and these changes result in emission of X-rays or by changing internal charge density. I am not familiar enough with the water molecule H2O to answer the second part of your question.
