Nanomaterials are quite present in our daily life, they are found in food, cosmetics, textiles, paints, electronic devices, etc.

Metallic and metal-oxide particles are the most abundant group containing for example silver, titanium, zinc or gold. Their metrological properties and their respective wanted and unwanted effects in relation to ingestion have to be studied to asses any risks to human and environmental health.

Therefore, it is very important to develop instruments and methodologies for adequate physico-chemical characterisation of nanomaterials.

This is done by the AINA group. We develop new tools for chemical imaging at high lateral resolution meaning that single nanoparticles can be adressed.

The intern will have the possibility to be part of this project and investigate nanoparticles concerning their shape, chemical composition and fate after incorporation using dedicated model systems and high resolution secondary ion mass spectrometry imaging.

This internship is related to the npSCOPE project, further information can be found here : .
