Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), France
The CEA Nanomaterials Chemistry and Safety Laboratory (CEA – LCSN) is a 32 people laboratory being part of the CEA LITEN (Laboratory for Innovation in New Energy Technologies and Nanomaterials). The research and development activity deals with nanomaterials synthesis, integration and safety issues. The Laboratory has developed a strong expertise in several fields such as synthesis of test nanoparticles on demand and/or labelled nanoparticles, generation of nano-aerosol and nano-hydrosol, nanoparticles measurements in airborne environment, innovative methods to detect specifically the nanoparticles of interest through the very high and fluctuant background noise involving ultra-trace elemental analysis (ICPMS, AAS, XRF, etc.).
