Unit nV
Name nanovolt
Category Electric Potential
Details A nanovolt (nV) is a unit of electric potential in the field of electrical engineering and physics. It is a derived unit of the International System of Units (SI) and is equal to one-billionth (10^-9) of a volt (V). In other words, 1 nanovolt = 0.000000001 volts (1 nV = 1 x 10^-9 V). Electric potential, also known as voltage, is a measure of the electric potential energy per unit charge that is associated with an electric field.

A nanovolt represents a very small amount of electric potential, typically observed in microelectronics, nanotechnologies, or ultra-sensitive measurements in scientific research. It is used to quantify voltage signals, electric field fluctuations, and potential differences at extremely small magnitudes where conventional voltage measurement units, such as millivolts (mV) or volts (V), might not be precise enough.
