The CFN brings together researchers from KIT Campus South in Karlsruhe (former Universität Karlsruhe (TH)) and KIT Campus North in Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen (former Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH). In 2009, the CFN building was inaugurated on Campus South and now houses the CFN Nanostructure Service Laboratory as well as the CFN Young Scientist Groups.

The aim of the CFN is to realize functional nanostructures, with focus on optical, electronic, biological, and energy conversion/storage functions. If any of these applications have just a small fraction of the impact that silicon technology (emerging from "Silicon Valley") has had on our society, the upper Rhine valley might soon be more widely known as "Nano Valley".
