This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in **micrometers (µm)** and converts it to its equivalent value in **nanometers (nm)**. A micrometer is also known as a micron.

**How many micrometers (µm) are there in a nanometer (nm)?** **What is the formula for converting micrometers to nanometers ****(µm to **nm)?

**(µm to**nm)?

**1 micrometer (µm) = 1,000 nanometers (nm)**

So we can say that there is 1,000 nanometers in 1 micrometer.

This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a micrometer unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a nanometer unit of measurement is 1,000.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

**1 nanometer (nm) = 0.001 micrometer (µm)**

So we can say that there is 0.001 micrometer in 1 nanometer.

This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a micrometer unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a nanometer unit of measurement is 0.001.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in micrometers to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in nanometers (µm to nm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

nm = µm × 1,000→ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

nm = µm ÷ 0.001→ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 25 micrometers that you want to convert to nanometers, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

nm = 25 µm × 1,000 = 25,000 nm

nm = 25 µm ÷ 0.001 = 25,000 nm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 25,000 nanometers.

To save you time and effort spent on having to perform manual calculations or look up conversion formulas every time a conversion from micrometers to nanometers is needed, here is a micrometers-to-nanometers conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in micrometers and their equivalent measurement values in nanometers. These equivalent measurement values may be rounded off to 1 or 2 decimal places when it is mathematically expedient for everyday applications.

**What is a micrometer (µm)?**

Definition of micrometer: A micrometer, also known as a micron, is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is equal to one millionth of a meter (10^-6 m). It is frequently used in scientific and industrial applications to measure very small distances such as cells, bacteria, and fine particles.

The term “micrometer” (µm) is the technically correct and preferred term according to the International System of Units (SI). But the term “micron” is more commonly used in everyday usage.

The abbreviation for micrometer is μm. The single Unicode character ㎛ (U+339B) represents the 2-character Greek/Latin abbreviation for micrometer. The Windows Alt code for this character ㎛ is Alt + 13211.

**What is a nanometer (nm)?**

Definition of nanometer: A nanometer is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is equal to one billionth of a meter (10^-9 m). It is commonly used to express dimensions on an atomic scale, such as wavelengths of light, and in nanotechnologies.

The abbreviation for nanometer is nm. The single Unicode character ㎚ (U+339A) represents the 2-character Latin abbreviation for nanometer. The Windows Alt code for this character ㎚ is Alt + 13210.
