Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM)

The Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM) has established itself internationally as one of the foremost research centers in its field since its inception in 2006. The design and the control of artificial and multifunctional nanosystems define the basis of NIM’s scientific mission, which brings together specialists in nanophysics, chemistry and the life sciences. Within the second phase of the Excellence Initiative, the research program has been extended in order to investigate the functionality of such synthetic nanosystems in complex surroundings and under realistic conditions. Artificial nanosystems have a wide range of possible applications in areas such as information technology and biotechnology, and in living cells.
