Is their any evidence in Legends or Canon that picotechnology or femtotechnology exists in Star Wars and just is never mentioned because it is not important to the story? Nanotech exists. It’s been mentioned many times and it makes no sense that scientists wouldn’t try to go smaller. Is their anything that exists in Star Wars that could only exists with the presence of this tech. NOT the Force. That is outside the realm of physics and science.

    Does nanotech mean a specific size range? I always thought it was just technobabble for "very small tech". – Rand al'Thor Dec 9 '19 at 20:27
  • No. It’s tech of 10 to the -9 power size. We are on the precipice of this technology here on Earth. Star Wars it is mature. Pico is -10 and Femto is -11 – Max Dec 9 '19 at 21:02

    Pico actually indicates the -12th power, femto the -15th. Nanotechnology bottoms out at just above the size of small molecules, so picotechnology would be either a) individual atoms (hardly worthy of the name "technology") or a novel arrangement of subatomic particles which is probably not very stable. – Cadence Dec 9 '19 at 22:47
