10minus9 is a blog about nanoscience and nanotechnology.

I’ve researched nanoscience at PhD and postdoctoral level, mainly working in microscopy. I’m passionate about explaining the science behind the mysterious nano-prefix to a wide audience, and am keen to hear your questions and comments about the subject.

I’m also interested in the way language is used to explain science, and I’ll occasionally stray into different areas if I think there’s something interesting to talk about.

Hope you enjoy the blog!
