Nanotechnology Drives New Levels of Performance

GE scientists are discovering new material properties at the nanoscale that drive new performance levels in jet engines, gas and steam turbines, electronic devices and disease diagnoses. More than 70 scientists are studying materials at the nanoscale (a nanometer is one-billionth of a meter—about 80,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair), learning how they behave differently than they do at the macro or even the micro level.
