Test Systems Shed Light into Nanoscale Property
Nanoscale materials are built at the atomic or molecular level; therefore, quantum mechanics come into play. As a result of small particle sizes, the atoms and molecules of these new materials often bond differently than they do in bulk substances, giving rise to the need for measurement routines to uncover the characteristics unique to nanoscale structures.
