nano- [NA noh], nan-, nanno-, -nania
(Greek: dwarf, dwarfish; pygmy; "little old man;" very small or tiny; also, a decimal prefix used in the international metric system for measurements)
This prefix is used in the metric [decimal] system as billionth [U.S.] and thousand-millionth [U.K.], 10-9 [0.000 000 001]. The metric symbol for nano- is n.
The tesla (symbol T) is the SI derived unit of magnetic flux density (or magnetic induction). It is a unit that defines the intensity (density) of a magnetic field.
This field will become a very important part of production in the years to come, as a new generation of micromachines and nanomachines find their way out of the laboratory and onto the production line.

A toroid is defined as a surface generated by rotating a closed curve around an axis that is in the same plane as the curve but does not intersect it.
It links all involved research and productive parties into relevant business processes.
Nanovid microscopy, by combining small colloidal gold probes with video-enhanced quantitative microscopy, allows for studying the intracellular dynamics of specific proteins in living cells.
An "electric potential" refers to the work required to bring a unit of positive electric charge from infinity to a specific point in an electric field or the amount of work needed to move a unit electric charge from a reference point to a specific point against an electric field.
2. A bryozoan heterozooid that has only one tentacle. Bryozoan are members of the phylum Bryozoa: the moss animals, a phylum of minute, mosslike marine and freshwater creatures, with distinct alimentary canals, that form permanent colonies and reproduce by budding.
