      Nano and Micro are just other units of measurement but they are extremely small. Nano is smaller than the Micro. So the study of Micro and Nanomaterials in my case means that I work with materials and I study what happens to them on a very small scale, so if you put it under the microscope how it looks, why it looks like that, and then relate those to the mechanical properties of those materials when we test them using very big machines to see how strong they are.
