This is a term that some people use to refer to the ability to recognize the number of things around you. The nm in that sense is about the ability to recognize and respond to the smallest number of things that are in your immediate vicinity.
In this way, the term comes from the scientific understanding of the concept of “multiple independent processes operating in parallel.” This understanding has led to the creation of a variety of advanced technologies, such as nuclear fusion, the space shuttle, and nanotechnology.
In the same way that we all know that nuclear fusion creates new atoms, nanotechnology also helps us create new things. For example, nanotechnology is used to make nanoparticles (smaller than a grain of sand) that can be used to create new medicines. Nanotechnology is also used to make things that are smaller than a human hair and be made into a drug, such as magnetic nanoparticles that can be used to target cells to specific locations.
A nanotechnology company called Actavis is developing a drug that can target cancer cells by using a magnetic nanoparticle that can be used to track cancer cells. This drug will be injected into cancerous patients via a needle and will act to destroy the cancer cells by preventing them from growing. In the same way that nanotechnology is used to make materials smaller than a grain of sand, nanotechnology is also used to make materials smaller than a human hair, and be made into a drug.
This is a bit of a strange one, but what is nm stands for? Nanometre? Nano? Nanometre? Nanometre…
It’s a number that is used to describe the size of a material, and is often the key to the name of a material. In nanotechnology, the size of a material is measured in millions of nanometres. It’s a number that is used to describe the size of a material, and is often the key to the name of a material.
Like sand, nano-materials are made from nanometres to the very smallest, and if nanometres are nanometres, then material would have to be so very small that it would fit in a human hair.
This is something we haven’t touched on in the story trailer, but it’s implied that nanometres are important stuff, and that nanometres are important for nano-materials to become.
That is, nanometres could be very small, but also very large. A nanometre is a thousandth of a millimetre, a nanometer is a millionth of a millimetre, and a nanohundredth of a millimetre is a hundredth of a millimetre. And so, nanometric materials could be very small, and also have lots of very tiny features.
Nanometres are the building blocks of nanotechnology. They are the things that allow us to build nanomaterials into much bigger and stronger things.
