At the overlap between the worlds of science and industry, CORDOUAN Technologies was born in September 2007 from the impetus of David Jacob (CTO) and Mathias Pennec (CEO), originating respectively from the telecom industry and laser/applied optics business. Sharing a common vision and ambition to develop and industrialize innovations still confined to research laboratories, our adventure started through a first technology transfer with the French Petroleum Institute (IFPEN). This successful transfer led to the development of a unique commercial granulometer named VASCO™ (like the famous Portuguese sailor) dedicated to the size characterization of nano-particles in complex medium.
After only four years of activities, Cordouan has constructed major expertise and become a reference in the world of N3 (Nanoparticles, Nanomaterials, Nanotechnologies) thanks to the development of innovative solutions for the characterization of nanoparticles and nanomaterials. Thus, today we offer our customers a coherent and broad portfolio of instrument solutions for Granulometry, Refractometry, Electrophoresis, Electronic Microscopy and sample preparation accessories. Present in more than 30 countries throughout the world, our instruments equip some of the most prestigious industrials and research laboratories (Total, Rhodia, L'Oreal, ENS Paris and Lyon, CRPP, ENSPCI, STMicro-electronic, INRS, Dow Chemical, ARABLAB, Université of Waterloo, etc) working on advanced applications: synthesis of polymers and functionalized metal nano-particles, crude oil extraction, improvement of the quality of cosmetic gels, development of special inks in colloidal form, biological studies and cellular analysis, etc.
The Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ EQUINOX 3000 X-ray Diffractometer for research enables accurate measurements.
KLA’s Filmetrics F40 allows you to transform your benchtop microscope into an instrument to measure thickness and refractive index.
