About the Author
Jean-Pierre Fouasssier is Professor Emeritus of Physical Chemistry and Photochemistry at the University of Haute Alsace (UHA) in Mulhouse, France. He received his Ph.D at the University of Strasbourg, France, in 1975 and became a full Professor in 1978. From 1980 -1993 he was the Head of the Laboratory of General Photochemistry at CNRS-URA 431, Mulhouse, and then Head of the Molecular Photochemistry and Photopolymerization team at the Department of Photochemistry at UHA (1994-2010). He was the Director of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Mulhouse (1993-1998), a Member of the National Committee of CNRS (1991-1995), Member of the National Committee of University (1989-2009), French Representative at the Steering Committee of the European Photochemistry Association (EPA, 1992-2000) and Coordinator of the Academic Committee of RadTech Europe (1988-2001). His research interests include time-resolved laser spectroscopy, photopolymerization reactions, as well as photosensitive systems for UV curing and imaging. He has authored 500 research articles, 32 book chapters as well as several books.
Jacques Lalevée received his Ph.D at the University of Mulhouse, France, in 2002. From 2004-2009 he was Associate Professor in Physical Chemistry and became a full Professor of Physical Chemistry at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie at University of Haute Alsace, Mulhouse, France, in 2009. Jacques Lalevée was a Member of the National Committee of University (2007-2009) and has authored more than 90 research articles. His research is focused on free radical chemistry, photochemistry and photopolymerization reactions, electron spin resonance (ESR), and time-resolved laser spectroscopy.
