The micrometer (symbol: μm) or micrometre (UK & International spelling), also commonly known as a micron, is an SI derived unit of length equaling 1×10−6 of a meter (SI standard prefix "micro-" = 10−6); that is, one millionth of a meter (or one thousandth of a millimeter, 0.001 mm, or about 0.000039 inch). The symbol μm is sometimes rendered as um if the symbol μ cannot be used, or if the writer is not aware of the distinction.

The micrometer is a common unit of measurement for wavelengths of infrared radiation as well as sizes of biological cells and bacteria and is also commonly used in plastics manufacturing. Micrometers are the standard for grading wool by the diameter of the fibers; wool finer than 25 μm can be used for garments, while coarser grades are used for outerwear, rugs, and carpets. The width of a single human hair ranges from approximately 10 to 200 μm. The first and longest human chromosome is 10μm in length.
