angstrom or angstrom unit (Å or A)

a measurement of length, equal to one ten thousandth of a MICRON. Nowadays, objects of such size are measured in nanometres (10-9m), where 1Å = 0.1 nm.

ångström - a unit of wavelength, 10-10 m, roughly the diameter of an atom; equivalent to 0.1 nm. Synonym(s): Ångström unit
Ångström law - a substance absorbs light of the same wavelength as it emits when luminous.
Ångström scale - a table of wavelengths of a large number of light rays corresponding to as many Fraunhofer lines in the spectrum.
