nanoscale

On a scale measured in nanometers
2. noun
a) A measuring tool with gradations in nanometers.

The nanoscales under development will have 10 000 to 40 000 graduations per 1 mm distance.

b) The scale of nanotechnology.

As opposed to the microscale, the nanoscale is not just another step toward miniaturization: it results in a qualitatively new material.
