Using Nanotechnology to Make Vehicles Lighter, Safer and More Sustainable (.PDF Download)

BMW is the latest auto manufacturer to get behind a nanotech company that uses extremely small things to make big gains.

The study and application of extremely small things, nanotechnology can be used across all the other science fields, including chemistry, biology, physics, materials science and engineering. And while it’s difficult to imagine just how “small” these things are, and the official definition of a nanometer is a billionth of a meter, these examples may help:

  • There are 25,400,000 nanometers in an inch
  • A sheet of newspaper is about 100,000 nanometers thick
  • If a marble was a nanometer, then one meter would be the size of the earth
