xa Xavier ALLONAS (Professor)
Head of the Lab
PhD in 1995 on photoinduced electron transfer mechanism at the Department of Photochemistry in Mulhouse (France) with Prof. P. Jacques as supervisor.
Short post-doctoral training at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of Fribourg in Switzerland on photoinduced electron transfer kinetics probed by picosecond transient grating spectroscopy with Eric Vauthey.
In 1996, permanent position as Assistant Professor, teaching Physical Chemistry at the Chemistry Institute of Mulhouse (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Mulhouse) in the group of Prof. J.-P. Fouassier.
Full Professor at the University of Haute Alsace in Mulhouse in 2003.
Since 2006, head of the Department of Photochemistry.
Current research interests are the primary processes involved in photopolymerization studied through time resolved laser spectroscopies, real-time FTIR and molecular modelling. This includes photoinduced electron tranfer, triplet-triplet energy transfer, hydrogen abstraction and radical or acid generation. 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, microelectronics...

 Céline CROUTXE-BARGHORN (Professor)
Head of the Group PMPH
Céline Croutxé - Barghorn graduated in chemistry at the University of Bordeaux (France) and the Technische Hochschule of Darmstadt (Germany). She attained her PhD in physical chemistry in 1996 at the University of Haute Alsace (France). Her work focused on the use of photopolymers for the generation of optical elements. She is currently Professor at University of Haute Alsace and head of the research group ““Photochemistry in Organic and Hybrid Materials” (POHM) in the Department of Photochemistry. Her present research interest is the study of the photopolymerization processes in hybrid sol-gel glasses, nanocomposites and all organic resins and their characterization for specific applications (coatings or bulk materials).

 Jean-Francois STUMBE (Professor)
Jean-François STUMBE obtained his PhD in 1998 in the Laboratory of Macromolecular Chemistry at the ENSCMu under the supervision of Professor G. RIESS. His work was dedicated to the synthesis of monotelechelic oligomers and to microencapsulation according to interfacial polycondensation process. From 1998 to 1999, he was a postdoctoral fellow at MacMaster University (Hamilton, Canada) in the group of Professor Françoise WINNIK and focused his research activities on synthesis of amphiphilic polyelectrolytes, formulation of liposomes and on the investigation of the interactions between liposomes and polyelectrolytes, by means of fluorescence and light scattering techniques. End of 1999, he then moved to the University of Freiburg (Germany) where he joined the group of Professor MÜLHAUPT and worked more particularly with Professor R. HAAG. His research interests were synthesis and chemical modification of hyperbranched polyglycerols. End of 2001, Jean-François STUMBE integrated the Central Polymer Research at BASF Ludwigshafen (Germany). His activities in term of exploratory and of applied research lead him to investigate numerous classes of hyperbranched polymers, but also to investigate enzymatic polymerizations and finally also to be strongly involved in the development of processes allowing for preparation of reactive resins such as polyesters (polycondensates, polycaprolactone), melamine-formaldehyde and the introduction of some of them in the production lines. Finally, he also developed research activities in the area of composites, and especially in investigations of organic matrices such as epoxies. Since October 2011, he is Professor in macromolecular chemistry at ENSCMu, and carries out research activities at the LPIM in the area of composites, synthesis of complex macromolecular architectures as well as in green polymeric materials.
