Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris 1986 - "Doctorat d´Etat (mention très honorable)" (PhD with distinction) Supervisor: Prof. J. Livage Dissertation: Preparation of electrochromic tungsten oxide films by acidification through a proton exchange resin of a tungstate solution. Research involved the study of the polycondensation process. Elucidation of the gelification and crystallization mechanisms. The Sol-Gel prepared film is used in an electrochromic display device.
