About Angstrom

The angstrom (or Ångström) is a non-SI unit of length equal to 10-10 of a meter (1 Å = 10-10 m), the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI).

One angstrom (Å) is also equal to 0.1 nanometers (nm), or 0.0001 micrometers (μm), or 10-7 millimeters (mm) or 10-8 centimeters (cm), which are SI units of length.

The angstrom unit is named after the Swedish physicist Anders Jonas Ångström (1814 - 1874) known for his fundamental work in heat conduction and spectroscopy.

The angstrom (Å) is commonly used in science and technology as a unit of measurement for the lengths of chemical bonds, the sizes of molecules, atoms and microscopic biological structures, the dimensions of integrated circuit parts and the wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation.
