Micron

 

a fractional unit of length equal to 10-6 m or 10-3 mm. Its symbol is μ. The name “micron” was abolished by a resolution of the Thirteenth General Conference on Weights and Measures (1967); according to GOST (All-Union State Standard) 7663–55 and the rule for formation of the names of fractional units, it is to be called the micrometer (Russian mikrometr).

(mechanics)
A unit of pressure equal to the pressure exerted by a column of mercury 1 micrometer high, having a density of 13.5951 grams per cubic centimeter, under the standard acceleration of gravity; equal to 0.133322387415 pascal; it differs from the millitorr by less than one part in seven million. Also known as micrometer of mercury.

micron

A unit of length equal to a thousandth part of a millimeter or a millionth of a meter.

micron

i. A unit used to measure the effectiveness of filters. One micron is a micrometer, or one millionth of a meter (10−6).
ii. A unit of linear measurement equal to one millionth (10−6) of a meter. Also called a micrometer.
iii. The amount of pressure exerted by a column of mercury one-micrometer (one millionth of a meter) high under standard conditions. A micron of pressure is equal to .001 mm of mercury.

micron

One micrometer, which is one millionth of a meter or approximately 1/25,000 of an inch. The tiny elements that make up a transistor on a chip are measured in micrometers and nanometers. See process technology.


Magnified 800 Times
This is an 800x magnification of a few bits of RAM from an early Motorola microcontroller. Although the actual size of what you see in this picture would fit on a pinhead, the elements in the devices on this chip are several microns wide, which is quite large by today's standards.
