Then one-thousandth of a millimetre is one thousandth of one-millionth, or one billionth
of a kilometre.
Unfortunately, thermometers that can measure temperatures of a few billionths
of a degree rely on physics that doesn't apply at these extremely low temperatures.
Physicists at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics announced Thursday that they had created, for 40 billionths
of a second, the first complete atoms of antimatter ever made by human beings or seen in nature.
BOTOX(R) is a medical product containing tiny amounts (only a few billionths
of a gram) of the highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.
The team studied less than 2 billionths
of a gram of fermium painstakingly produced by Oak Ridge (Tenn.
Additionally, Fab 24 is Intel's third fab to manufacture semiconductors with circuitry of 90 nm (90 billionths
of a meter) across.
These transistors, measuring ten nanometers, or ten billionths
of a meter in length (gate), are six times smaller than the smallest transistors currently in production.
It ejects a photon for at least a third of the electrons, timed to a precision of tens of billionths
of a second.
The patient received TP-38 at a dose of 25 billionths
of a gram per hour until she had received a total dose of a millionth of a gram.
The TMS-2000RC can now measure disk surface roughness less than one Angstrom (one angstrom is four billionths
of an inch) as well as determine the microroughness of the surface in both the radial and circumferential direction simultaneously.
