John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Although the name sounds like something out of a science fiction novel, nanoparticles are nothing more than tiny fragments of matter that are typically less than 100 nanometers in diameter – roughly one-thousandth the thickness of a sheet of paper. Despite their size, however, they can pose a significant health risk. Arising from various industrial processes, some pollutants, and even volcanic activity, the small size of the...
