What is nanometer?

Nanometer is a unit of length in the metric system. It equals 10-9 meter. It is commonly used in nanotechnology.

Nanometer is widely used as a scale for building tiny, complex, and atomic scale computing and electronic components – specifically in nanotechnology.

It is often used to express dimensions on an atomic scale: the diameter of a helium atom, for example, is about 0.06 nm, and that of a ribosome is about 20 nm.

You can convert nanometer to other length units as follow:
