Joel,

Pico is the atomic level its self...nano is a thousand picos......crystalline materials start at 20 nanometers.....

most or many engineers believe that real manufacturing on the nanometer scale will begin in ten years with developments allowing......but if we were to say things are made......are they made on the picometer scale? yes atoms are used.....

I dont really know what is made currently on the nanometer scale that really is not made on a larger scale....for instance the new Dream Liner Jet is made on the micro scale......and that is now considered futuristic.....

I would need more info on what is made on the nano scale to see what was going on currently....

Dave
