Since its foundation in 2006, the Nanosystems Initiative Munich, or NIM for short, has established itself as a leading international nanocenter. The design and control of artificial and multifunctional nanosystems are the cornerstones of the scientific programme of the Cluster of Excellence, which brings together scientists from the fields of nanophysics, chemistry and the life sciences. The use of these functional nanosystems in complex and realistic environments became a central research aspect in the second funding phase of the Excellence Initiative. Artificial nanosystems have a broad application potential in areas such as information technology and biotechnology, but also in living cells.
