Unit nA
Name nanoampere
Category Electric Current
Details A nanoampere (nA) is a unit of electric current in the International System of Units (SI). It represents one billionth (10^-9) of an ampere, which is the standard unit of measuring the flow of electric charge. In the field of electric current, a nanoampere is typically used to measure very small currents, such as those in microelectronics, nanotechnology, and delicate scientific experiments where higher currents could cause damage or generate noise. Essentially, a nanoampere is used to quantify and communicate minuscule electric currents that play vital roles in these specific fields and applications.
