Composite in which at least one of the phase domains has at least one dimension of the order of nanometres.
Reference : International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) Glossary
A multi-phase material in which the majority of the dispersed phase components have one or more dimensions of the order of 100 nm or less.
Reference : Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks 2007
Solid comprising a mixture of two or more phase-separated materials, one or more being nanophase. Gaseous nanophases are excluded and also materials with nanoscale phases formed by precipitation alone are not considered to be nanocomposite.

It is the average number of times the nanotechnology articles published within a year have been cited in the Journal Citation Reports.
The total number of times all records have been cited: This field displays the total number of citations to all of the nanotechnology-related articles in the set of search results.
This field displays the h-index count and is based on a list of publications ranked in descending order by the Times Cited count. The h-index is the number of the item/publication in the h rank of the mentioned ranking that has at least "h" citations. For example, an h-index of 20 means 20 items have 20 citations or more. This metric is useful because it discounts the disproportionate weight of highly cited papers or papers that have not yet been cited.
Number of nanotechnology-related articles indexed in Web of Science (WoS)
The indicator shows the number of nanotechnology granted patents in USPTO. According to ISO/TS 18110 (First Edition 2015-08-15), the definition of nanotechnology patents is “patents that include at least one claim related to nanotechnology or patents classified with an IPC classification code related to nanotechnology such as B82.
The indicator shows the number of nanotechnology patents applications published (but not yet granted) in USPTO.
