Xavier Allonas received the Ph.D. degree, in 1995, on photoinduced electron transfer mechanism at the Department of Photochemistry in Mulhouse, France. Allonas received short postdoctoral training at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of Fribourg in Switzerland on picosecond transient grating spectroscopy. In 1996, Allonas was Assistant Professor at the Chemistry Institute of Mulhouse (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Mulhouse). Allonas was Full Professor at the University of Haute Alsace in Mulhouse, in 2003. Since 2006, Allonas was Head of the Laboratory of Macromolecular Photochemistry and Engineering. Allonas’ current research interests are the processes involved in photopolymerization studied through time resolved laser spectroscopies, real‐time FTIR, and molecular modelling. A particular interest is paid to the study of photoinitiating systems reactivity and photopolymerization kinetics for different applications such as laser imaging, paints and coatings, optics, and microelectronics.
