University of Orleans to Use Two Nanoparticles Size Analyzer Instruments by Cilas

CILAS has  recently  provided  the  University  of  Orléans  with  two  nanoparticles  size analyzer instruments: the NANO DS and the SAFEAIR, for a new scientific platform called NANOSYNTHESE.

NANOSYNTHESE, is a collaborative  project with the University of Orléans, the CEA (the Atomic Energy Commission), and CILAS. The platform is equipped with production means for nanopowders, nanocomposite powders and nanostructered coating. This platform will meet the  needs  of  partners  in  terms  of  synthesis  of  new  materials and  implementation  of nanoparticle size analyzer instruments.

The Nano DS is the first particle size analyzer using both dynamic light scattering DLS and static light scattering SLS.

This innovating technology gives preciseness and exceptional repeatability from 0.3nm to 10 micron.

The SAFEAIR measures the concentration of ultra small particles and nanoparticles in the air and their elemental chemical speciation in real time.

It controls and therefore limits the exposure of staff to nanoparticles by inhalation thanks to the LIBS technology (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy), which uses a laser developed by CILAS.

The applications aimed by  the platform are:

  • High-tech mechanics for aeronautics and car industry
  • Optics devices for laser applications
  • Formulations for cosmetics and well-being
  • Advanced technologies for energy (nuclear, photovoltaic, batteries,  PAC, high  temperature electrolysis).
