nanometer

[′nan·ə‚mēd·ər]
(mechanics)
A unit of length equal to one-billionth of a meter, or 10-9 meter. Also known as millimicron (μm); nanon.

nanometer

A unit of length used to express wavelengths of light in and near the visible spectrum; 1 nanometer equals 10-9 meter or 10 angstroms. Abbr.nm.

nanometer

One billionth of a meter. Nanometers are used to measure the wavelengths of light. See angstrom and metric system.
