The institute is part of the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research.
Chemical nanotechnology that has been highly developed by the INM represents a new dimension in nanoscience, which was dominated by physics for a very long time.
The Leibniz Institute for Surface Modification carries out basic and applied research on physical and chemical mechanisms which are important at fabrication and modification of isolating, metallic, semi-conducting and polymeric surface layers. Low-energetic ions, electrons, plasma as well as VUV and UV photons are employed.
The researchers at the IPF work towards understanding the effects of interfaces and the utilization of interface design in material development, in which nanotechnological aspects as well as interfaces to biosystems are of great importance.
A joint enterprise with Imperial College London, the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) has been designed to act as a focus for current interdisciplinary nanoscale materials and device research.

The Lyon Institute of Nanotechnology (INL) is a fundamental and applied research laboratory in the field of micro- and nano-technology. Its mission is to conduct research towards the development of fully-fledged technologies for a broad range of application sectors (semiconductors and micro-electronics, telecoms, energy, health, biology, industrial control, defence, environment).
Research on dynamics and self organization covers nanobio complexity.
The mission of the Department Structure and Nano-/Micromechanics is: to develop experimental methods to perform quantitative nano-/micromechanical and tribological tests for complex and miniaturized materials;to unravel the underlying deformation mechanisms by advanced microstructure characterization techniques from the micrometer level down to atomic dimensions; to establish material laws for local and global mechanical behavior; and to generate nanostructured materials and high temperature intermetallic materials with superior mechanical properties.
A group of physicists, biologists, chemists and engineers conceiving inventing and utilizing optical microscopes with resolution at the nanometer scale to advance life sciences.
Dealing with chemical and physical aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Research efforts in the Department are centered on nanometer-scale science and technology, primarily focussing on solid state phenomena that are determined by small dimensions and interfaces.
The creation of novel materials with targeted functionalities is the ultimate goal in several scientific and technological fields, ranging from chemistry and pharmaco-chemistry to molecular electronics and renewable energies. Molecular modelling and simulation are vital components of the scientific investigation of materials, as well as essential tools to engineer novel materials with improved performances. Future advances in this field should systematically address the challenge of bridging the gap between simulations and experiments. To this end, a unifying theme of this research is the development of a modelling framework for the investigation of materials. Through the creative synthesis of traditional all-atom simulations, electronic structure methods, and rare events techniques, we apply a multiscale approach to the study of materials and nanostructures.
Four departments: Biomaterials, Colloid Chemistry, Interfaces as well as Theory and Bio-Systems. Current research topics are polymeric films, membranes, micro- capsules, organic and inorganic nano- structures, biomineralization, nanoreactors or molecular motors.
Experimental and theoretical research carried out at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics is primarily focussed on solid state phenomena that are determined by small dimensions and surfaces and interfaces. The investigations concentrate on establishing relations between the magnetic, electronic, optical, and mechanical properties of solids and their microstructure. Thin films and surfaces are investigated as well as nanocrystalline materials, phase boundaries and defects in bulk crystals.
MBI's primary focus is to identify, measure and describe how the forces for motility and morphogenesis are expressed at the molecular, cellular and tissue level. Toward that goal, the group is working to create a common international standard for defining these steps by developing powerful new computational models, experimental reagents, and tools for studying diseases of cells and tissues. The goal is then to transfer these basic discoveries to both the clinic and the classroom.
The lab research activity is devoted to the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured films and surfaces, clusters and nanostructures.
