COOPERATIVE PATENT CLASSIFICATION
B82B
NANO-STRUCTURES FORMED BY MANIPULATION OF INDIVIDUAL ATOMS, MOLECULES, OR LIMITED COLLECTIONS OF ATOMS OR MOLECULES AS DISCRETE UNITS; MANUFACTURE OR TREATMENT THEREOF [2013-01]
NOTES

  • This subclass does not cover chemical or biological nano-structures per se, provided for elsewhere, e.g. in classes C08 or C12.
  • Attention is drawn to the Note following the title of class B82, which defines the meaning of the terms "nano-size", "nano-scale" and "nano-structure" in this subclass.
  • Subject matter classified in this subclass is further classified in subclass B82Y, in order to enable a comprehensive search of nano-structure technology using classification symbols of B82Y in combination with classification symbols of B82B.
  • Nano-structures having specialised features or functions are further classified in appropriate places in other subclasses that provide for those features or functions, e.g. in G01Q, G02F 1/017, H01L 29/775.
