  Micrometre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A micrometre (American spelling: micrometer, symbol µm) is an SI unit of length equal to one millionth of a metre, or about a tenth of the size of a droplet of mist or fog.
The micrometre is a common unit of measurement for wavelengths of infrared radiation.
This practice persists in the face of official discouragement, perhaps to help disambiguate between the unit of measurement and the micrometer, a measuring device.

 Talk:Micrometre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Micrometre is not Exametre, Petameter, or Zettametre (whose links are "self reflective" ones from technical "orders of magnitude" articles, and have been thus quite appropriatly made into redirects to Metre).
Anyone who would type in "micrometre" could just as easily (more easily!) search for "metre" and get there, and anyone who had no idea whatsoever what they were clicking on would be able to understand the very clear sentence at the top of 1 E-6 m and follow that link to metre.
I do agree that micrometre should have it's own article, but I think in the meantime it's rather silly to redirect to the base unit when there is an article (albeit brief) on this exact topic in the form of 1 E-6 m.

 Micrometre : search word
A micrometre (American spelling: micrometer), symbol µm, is an SI unit of length.
Some people (especially in astronomy and the semiconductor business) use the old name micron and/or the solitary symbol µ for the same thing, even though it is officially discouraged.
Boston, in my time pervaded society; but New York has distinctly nothing of the kind, in any marketed here; but our good society cares no more for it than for some books as for horses or for stocks, and I suppose it is not unlike.

 Dusty Plasma   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
A dusty plasma contains suspended particles of matter typically of the nanometre to micrometre size (one billionth to one millionth of a metre in size).
Small plastic particles, with diameters of around 5 micrometres, are injected into the plasma.
They acquire charge and form a plasma crystal in the plasma sheath adjacent to the powered electrode where the force due to the sheath electric field balances the gravitation force.

These observations clearly indicate that ~20 micrometre OP particles observed in the soils are derive from underlying sedimentary rocks.
However, for 50% of the soils considered, some OP particles with mean size values around 60 micrometre are also found.
This fraction is never observed in the rocks of the underlying rocks, indicating that these particles cannot derive from the geological substrate.

 Millimetres To Micrometres   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The entire march of processor technology I showed in the timing slide is essentially the story of learning to shrink our circuits from the order of tens of micrometres to single micrometres, and the frontier of electronics in the next several years will be shrinking further, down to fractions of a micrometre.
All the way down to micrometres, we've been able to design circuits essentially the way we did in the days of vacuum tubes.
Somewhere between half a micrometre and a tenth of a micrometre, these comfortable assumptions begin to break down.

 Micrometre-scale silicon electro-optic modulator : Nature
The modulator is based on a resonant light-confining structure that enhances the sensitivity of light to small changes in refractive index of the silicon and also enables high-speed operation.
The modulator is 12 micrometres in diameter, three orders of magnitude smaller than previously demonstrated.
Electro-optic modulators are one of the most critical components in optoelectronic integration, and decreasing their size may enable novel chip architectures.
