      Dear Dusan,

      Thanks for your contribution. "Submikrometrovy" sounds pretty good but I
      cannot find this expression even via Google.

      I think I will use some kind of description...

      Hope I am not too late, I was too busy. Micron is certainly a unit of length
      (one milionth of a meter), sub-micron means less than one micron (in Czech
      "mikronovy", "submikronovy"). Note that "sub-millimeter" (in BE) or
      "submillimeter" (in AE) means
      smaller than one millimeter. "Sub-millimeter" (in Czech "submilimetrovy") is
      a frequently used term e.g. in communication technologies, denotes the
      wavelength of radiation (by the way, our mobile phones use submillimeter
      wavelengths). Micron is
      a typical dimension of colloid particles, too small for wavelengths. This is
      what I missed in your otherwise nice translation - in this case they
      probably refer to the sub-micron density of their chips or something like
      that.
