What is Nano ?

One nanometer is one millionth of a millimeter. Or, in other words, about 100,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair.

The size relationship between a nanometer and a football corresponds to the size relationship between a football and the globe.

Nanotechnology means working with very small materials: less than 100 nanometers (nm).
