CORDOUAN TECHNOLOGIES SAS
Based in Pessac FRANCE (33), CORDOUAN TECHNOLOGIES is a start up company specialized in the design, fabrication and industrialization of innovative instruments for physico-chemical characterization (size, charge, shape) of nano-particles and nano-materials for academic research and industrial application (process monitoring, quality control, R&D). Thus thanks to its skills and know how in optoelectronic technologies, optics, light scattering, software and user interface, Cordouan proposes to its customers measurement solutions for granulometry, refractometry, zetametry, electronic microscopy and preparation accessories. Our unique product portfolio is issued from patented and innovative technologies transferred from prestigious research institutes: Institut Français du Pétrole (IFP EN), Karlsruhe Institute of Technologie (KIT), Institut Charles Sadron (ICS). Those key partners allow us outsourcing our R&D while benefiting from their expertise and financial support all along the projects.
Cordouan Technologies is also actively involved in collaborative research programs either national (ANR, CIFRE Industrial PhDs) or European (FP7) which allow us to develop and demonstrate the capabilities of our technologies and know how in various applications related to nano-particles.
As a member of the French standardization association (AFNOR) since several years, Cordouan Technologies is also actively involved in standardization activities nationally (AFNOR/X457 Nanotechnologies commission) and internationally (ISO/TC 24/SC 4 & ISO/TC 229).
