From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mesotechnology is a term sometimes used in relation to the interface between the everyday macroscopic world, and nanotechnological devices which may be invented in the future. The difficulty stems from engineering a reliable, usable interaction between devices that operate on size scales so many orders of magnitude apart.
It may also refer to manipulating materials at a larger scale than nanotechnology but at a smaller scale than the macroscale. The prefix meso- comes from the Greek word mesos, meaning middle.
