nanoribbon, nanobelt (rus. нанолента) — nanofibre with rectangular cross-section whose lateral dimension ratio is larger than 2 : 1.


As in the case with nanofibre, two characteristic sizes of nanoribbon (Lx and Ly) are in the nanoscale (~1–100 nm). The third characteristic size (Lz) is much greater than Lx and Ly and may exceed the nanoscale : Lz >> Lx,Ly.

Nanoribbon is fundamentally different from nanofibre because a) its cross-section is rectangular, and b) the ratio of lateral dimensions is larger than 2 : 1.
