The unique C60 atoms configuration known as buckyball have attracted notice for their ability to quench light, but layered buckyballs can be used in novel laser nanointerferometers. These nanointerferometers have the wide area of applications: manufacturing, metrology, biology, medicine, industry, space equipment, astronomy, physics, biophysics, biochemistry, pharmacology, cell research, biometrics, microelectronics, etc. The nanointerferometers are proposed with this aims and can be very small. A nanointerferometers consists of a laser, special equipment with layered buckyballs and image receiver. The layered buckyball surface are used in laser nanointerferometers for making a reference and a working beams. One part of the beam of laser reflects from one side of the layered buckyball-this is a reference arm. The last part of the laser beam reflects from the other side of the layered buckyball and goes to a mirror, - the working arm of the interferometer. Then working beam of the interferometer passes back from mirror and interfere with reference arm. The interferometers pictures can be recorded by means of the image receiver, for example, CCD. The equipment must be made of zero-expansion material. These new nanointerferometers are simple in use, have the low cost and easily/fastly manufactured in quantity. These new nanointerferometers are use in extremely wide region of spectrum. The novel unique buckyballs call and do new sciences of novel buckyballs laser nanointerferometry and new buckyballs high technology in the aforementioned very wide area of applications.
