Nanoparticles, characterization and environment
Leader: Philippe Pareige
This research department was created in 2013 to develop multidisciplinary projects involving physics and biology to address societal issues in the field of health and environment. Human exposure to nanoparticles (anthropogenic or natural), and their dispersion in the environment remain a major concern for public authorities. In this context, projects are devoted to interactions of (nano)particles with living organisms in connection with toxicological and cosmetological studies. These studies are specifically carried out at various length scale using electron microscopy (SEM and TEM) and nanoSIMS.
