hellonanometers are cool —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.32.27.46 (talk) 20:36, 30 April 2009 (UTC)[] Unfortunately, the definition is incorrect because of the different definitions of a billion in American (10^9) and British (10^12) English. A nanometer is a billionth of a meter but a milliardth of a metre. I hope someone can fix this. Sim...

On Picometre there's a diagam of a helium atom which gives an idea of perspective. Any suggestions for a similar type of diagram in this article? 86.27.92.162 10:12, 9 June 2007 (UTC)[]

I do not like all the English spellings taking predominance over the US spellings. Far more scientists, semiconductor manufacturers and users of small measurements are in the US. Any objections to changing these pages to predominant US spellings, redirecting from the British spellings? --68.73.203.92 01:35, 26 September 2007 (UTC)[] 1. Yes. ~~Lazyg...

A friend of mine sent me an email last summer about nanotechnology -etc. He included this explanation:If the distance between New York and Los Angeles was a 'meter' then at this scale: 1. A human cell is about the size of a basketball court 2. Nanotechnology deals with objects smaller then a basketball 3. A nanometer is the size of an ant —Precedin...
