# Convert Nanometers (nm) to Micrometers (μm)

Please provide the values below to convert from Nanometer (nm) to Micrometers (μm) and vice versa.

### What is a Nanometer?

The nanometre (SI symbol: nm) or nanometer (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one billionth (short scale) of a meter (0.000000001 m).

The nanometre is often used to express dimensions on an atomic scale: the diameter of a helium atom, for example, is about 0.06 nm, and that of a ribosome is about 20 nm. The nanometre is also commonly used to specify the wavelength of electromagnetic radiation near the visible part of the spectrum: visible light ranges from around 400 to 700 nm.

### What is a Micrometer?

The Micrometre (SI symbol: μm) or micrometer (American spelling), also commonly known as a micron, is a unit of length equalling 1×10−6 meter (SI standard prefix "micro-" = 10−6); that is, one-millionth of a meter (or one-thousandth of a millimeter, 0.001 mm, or about 0.00004 inches).

A micrometer is a standard unit of measurement used to measure wavelengths of infrared radiations, sizes of biological cells and bacteria, and for grading wool by the diameter of the fibers.

The width of a single human hair ranges from approximately 20 to 200 μm. The longest human chromosome, chromosome 1, is approximately 10 μm in length.

### How to Convert Nanometer to Micrometers?

To convert Nanometer to Micrometers, simply divide the Nanometer value by 1000.

The formula used to calculate Nanometer to Micrometers -

d(nm) = d(μm) / 1000

The distance d in Micrometers (μm) is equal to the distance d in Nanometers (nm) divided by 1000.

### How many Micrometers in a Nanometer

In simple terms, 1 nm is equal to 0.001 μm.

The formula used is 1/1000 = 0.001(μm)

### How many Nanometers in a Micrometer

1 Micrometer is equal to 1000 Nanometers. So we can also say that there are 1000 Nanometers in a Micrometer.
