Atoms, Molecules, Electrons, Light and Heat in Nanometre Confinement

The chemistry within yoctolitre (10−24 L) holes or on the surface of particles with a yoctolitre volume is generally called “nanochemistry” because each dimension of these holes and particles measures a nanometre (nm): 1 yL = 1 nm3. In volumes of up to 1000 yL, e.g. 10 × 10 × 10 nm, all distances be...
