Angstrom scale | definition of Angstrom scale by Medical dictionary
Ǻng·ström scale (ang'strŏm),
a table of wavelengths of a large number of light rays corresponding to the equivalent number of Fraunhofer lines in the spectrum.
Ångström, Anders J., Swedish physicist, 1814-1874.
- 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.

First, the wavelength of the X-ray light is at the Angstrom scale
, and tunable, so that the individual atoms in a molecule can be imaged.

We aim to detect motion within the receptor on the angstrom scale
by trapping conformational states during activation with artificial metal ion binding sites and disulfide bonds.
Resolution of the system, on the nanometer scale laterally and angstrom scale
vertically, is comparable or superior to electron microscopy techniques.
