A nanometer is a billionth of a meter. Or 10^-9 meters. A nanometer is 3 to 6 atoms across (depending on the atoms used). It could be that there was just some typo in the document you read. Kind regards,

Subject: [extropy-chat] a nano question
I have found a repeated discrepancy. Is a nanometer a millionth or a billionth of a meter? The US gov't papers all say a millionth (like the recent "The Future is Coming Sooner Than You Think" and its earlier gov't source material), but I have read a billionth in other places.
And the answer is...?
