Nano Technology
Nanometre ­ is a unit of length. It is equal to 1 billionth of a
Nanoparticle ­ are very small particles. They are classed in
diameter length. Fine particles range from 100 to 2500
nanometres and ultra-fine particles range from 1 to 100
Nanotube ­ is a nanometre scale which has a tube-like
Nanocomposite ­ is a solid material that has dimensions
less than 100 nanometres.
