In recent years, a level of nanoscale fabrication has been achieved where dimensions and energy scales are such that quantum effects are dominant and can even be controlled in a variety of condensed matter systems. In this paper, several examples are given to illustrate the influence of nanostructuring on the physical properties of superconducting and normal magnetic systems. For superconductors we will discuss quantum interference effects in mesoscopic single loops and multiloop structures and the confinement of flux lines by a lattice of artificial submicron antidots. For magnetic layers we will analyze the size dependence of the Kondo and spin-glass effects.
