On May 23, 2023, the national standard "Nanotechnology Terminology Part 12: Quantum Phenomena in Nanotechnology," hosted by the National Nanotechnology Standardization Technical Committee (SAC/TC 279), was officially released. The standard was formally implemented on December 1, 2023. Beijing Perfectlight Technology Co., Ltd., as the main drafting unit of the standard, actively participated in the entire process from formulation to publication.
In China, there is an ancient saying, "Secure the source of food before military operations." In the field of high-tech nanotechnology today, Chinese authorities propose that research standards for nanotechnology should take the lead. Li Zhonghai, the director of the National Standards Committee, believes that traditionally, in the industrial field, products usually precede standards. However, in the standardization work of high-tech fields, there must be a change in the traditional mindset, advocating innovative ideas. In the standardization work of nanomaterials, it is essential to promote standards first, guide industrial development with standards, and regulate the market with standards. Standardizing nanomaterials is a forward-looking standard work in the field of new materials, involving multiple disciplines and fields.
In 2001, the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology included "Nanomaterial Standards and Databases" in the basic major research projects. In December 2003, the "National Nanomaterial Standardization Joint Working Group" was established with the approval of the National Standards Committee, and nearly 15 nanomaterial standards have been studied and formulated.
On May 23, 2023, the national standard "Nanotechnology Terminology Part 12: Quantum Phenomena in Nanotechnology" (GB/T 30544.12—2023/ISO/TS 80004-12:2016, IDT), with Beijing Perfectlight Technology Co., Ltd. as the main drafting unit, was released. The formulation and release of this standard will provide a basic basis for unified technical terminology in the field of quantum-related production, application, inspection, circulation, and scientific research in nanotechnology. It is an important foundation and prerequisite for carrying out various technical standard research and formulation work related to quantum aspects of nanotechnology.
Beijing Perfectlight Technology Co., Ltd., founded in 2006, is a national high-tech enterprise integrating research and development, production, sales, and services, committed to the development of intelligent, high-precision, and high-performance high-tech equipment. Perfectlight Technology has various independent intellectual property rights, which have been applied in various research fields such as new energy, drug synthesis, and fine chemicals. While focusing on the domestic market, multiple products are also exported overseas. Perfectlight Technology has been recognized as a national high-tech enterprise and Zhongguancun high-tech enterprise. The company has passed the ISO9001 quality management system certification and complies with the five-star standard of GB/T27922-2011 "Evaluation System for After-sales Service of Commodities."
Perfectlight Technology not only has strong research and development capabilities but also adheres to the service concept of "customer-centered" and the corporate spirit of "innovation, pragmatism, and excellence." As a high-tech and innovative enterprise, it actively leads cutting-edge technologies such as high-tech intelligent equipment, continuously innovates, challenges, and, with an excellent and innovative spirit, promotes its continuous growth and expansion.
In April 2005, China promulgated the first batch of seven national standards in the field of nanotechnology, including "Nanomaterial Terminology" (GB/T 19619—2004, terminology for nanomaterials). This standard defines the general concept of nanomaterials and specific concepts classified by technology. It is divided into six categories: general concepts, categories of nanomaterials, characteristics, preparation methods, treatment methods, and characterization methods, with a total of 68 terms. The definition of nanoscale in this standard is geometric dimensions in the range of 1 to 100 nanometers, without involving property changes.
In recent years, many enterprises have realized the strategic significance of participating in standard formulation, forming a consensus: first-class enterprises formulate standards, second-class enterprises provide sales and services, and third-class enterprises sell products.
With the release of the national standard for nanotechnology in China, Perfectlight Technology, as the main drafting unit, will have more say in the industry, further leading the development of related industries.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology are scientific and technological disciplines based on many modern advanced scientific and technological achievements. They are the products of the combination of dynamic science (dynamic mechanics) and modern science (chaos physics, intelligent quantum, quantum mechanics, mesoscopic physics, molecular biology) and modern technology (computer technology, microelectronics, and scanning tunneling microscope technology, nuclear analysis technology). Nanoscience and nanotechnology will also trigger a series of new scientific and technological developments, such as nanophysics, nanobiology, nanochemistry, nanoelectronics, nanofabrication technology, and nanometrology.
Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary subject with a strong focus on various fields of modern technology. Nanoscience and technology mainly include nanosystem physics, nanochemistry, nanomaterials, nanobiology, nanoelectronics, nanofabrication, and nanomechanics. These seven relatively independent yet mutually permeating disciplines and the three research areas of nanomaterials, nanodevices, and nanoscale detection and characterization.
The current research and application of nanotechnology mainly focus on materials and preparation, microelectronics and computer technology, medicine and health, aerospace, aviation, environment and energy, biotechnology, and agricultural products. Equipment made from nanomaterials is lighter, harder, longer-lasting, lower in maintenance costs, and more convenient in design. Nanomaterials can also be used to create materials with specific properties or materials that do not exist in nature, as well as biological and biomimetic materials.
