The image to the left is a man-made motor, a motor so small 6,000 of them could fit on the head of a pin. Welcome to the world of the nanometer, a unit of measurement so small it is one-billionth the size of a meter. In fact, a nanometer is 100,000 times thinner than a strand of human hair. Now that’s small! European researchers recently discovered a new method of laser-based nanotechnology that can be used to rebuild parts of the body that have been damaged. Johannes Heitz, Senior Research Associate at the University of Linz, Austria, and his team of European scientists have developed a new way of growing human cells inside damaged bodies by using nanotechnology methods.
