# What is smaller than a picosecond?

pico- is a prefix that can be added to any measurement to mean divide by 1,000,000,000,000. femto- is smaller and means / 1,000,000,000,000,000.

atto- is even smaller and means / 1,000,000,000,000,000,000.

### What is smaller than a millisecond?

A microsecond, which is 1,000 times smaller than a millisecond. A nanosecond, which is one-millionth of a millisecond (one-billionth of a second). A picosecond, which is one-billionth of a millisecond (one-trillionth of a second). This is also the shortest period of time that is currently accurately measurable.

### How many seconds are in 1 picoseconds?

A picosecond is one-trillionth of a second. It is also one-thousandth of a nanosecond. As such there are 0.000000000001 (or 10-12) seconds in a picosecond.

### What is less than a picosecond?

I'm tempted to reply ½ a pecosecond(!) However, I think you're asking what is the next description below pecosecond; it is a femtosecond (10−15 second). There are 1000 femtoseconds in a pecosecond.
