I've seem it meaning "a lot less than".

Not in this case, it is actually slightly different than the "much less than symbols". It was used in the formulation of an equation using the uncertainty principle, that explained why an electron "through the double slit experiment" changes it direction when measured.

From the context, it looks like much less than. (Although the shape is rather odd for that)
