There are 1×108 nanometers in one decimeter. A decimeter is 1×108 times longer than a nanometer. A nanometer is 1.0E-06% of a decimeter

## Decimeters to nanometers conversion factor and formulas

Formula

The conversion factor between decimeters and nanometers is 100,000,000. This represents the ratio of nanometers per one decimeter. To calculate the value in nanometers, we can either multiply by the conversion factor or divide by its inverse.

### Multiplication

To convert from decimeters to nanometers, multiply decimeters by 100,000,000.
The formula is expressed as:
dm × 100,000,000 = nm

### Division

Alternatively we can divide by the inverse conversion factor to get the same result.
The inverse of 100,000,000 is 1/100,000,000 or 0. To convert from decimeters to nanometers, divide decimeters by 0.
The formula is expressed as:
dm ÷ 0 = nm

A conversion from decimeters to nanometers are units within in the metric (SI) or SI compatible systems.

SI Unit

Within the SI (metric) system of measurement, the decimeter is officially defined as one tenth (1/10) of a meter. The decimeter is not widely used in everyday situations. Internationally it is spelled 'decimetre' whereas the U.S. spells it 'decimeter'. The symbol for decimeters is dm.

SI Unit

A nanometer is a metric (SI) measure of length defined as one billionth (1/1,000,000,000) of a meter or a millionth (1/1,000,000) of a millimeter. The nanometer is frequently used for measurement of integrated circuitry in the computer semiconductor industry. The symbol for nanometer (or nanometre) is nm.
