Scope Note

Techniques that produce or measure features less than 100 nanometers in size [Quoted from: ]


The science that deals with the study and manipulation of structures at the nano level. At the nano level, things are measured in nanometers (nm), or one billionth of a meter (10−9). Nanoparticles can be produced using various techniques known as top-down nanofabrication, which starts with a larger quantity of material and removes portions to create the nanoscale material [Quoted from: ]
