What is Nanotechnology?, Business and Industry Trends Analysis

Nanotechnology is actually a catch-all term for anything on the scale of nanometers (nm).  A nanometer is one billionth of a meter, and nanotechnology is generally anything that is done or built on a scale between 0.1 and 100 nm in size.  To give some perspective on how small this really is, consider that a line of 10 hydrogen atoms is one nanometer across; red blood cells are thousands of nanometers across; and a human hair is about 50,000 nanometers in diameter.  Adjectives fail to describe how small a nanometer is.  (In contrast, MEMS are measured on the much larger…
