Maryline Guilloux-Viry received the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Rennes, France, in 1991. Her PhD was focused on YBCO high Tc superconductor epitaxial thin films. She was researcher at Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) from 1991 to 2005 at Laboratoire de Chimie du Solide et Inorganique Moléculaire, from University of Rennes 1. She was nominated as Full Professor in 2005 at Rennes Chemical Sciences Institute (ISCR), UMR 6226 CNRS – University of Rennes 1. She is now director of the group “Solid State Chemistry and Materials”. Her main research field concerns synthesis and characterization of thin films, especially epitaxial growth (by pulsed laser deposition and sputtering) and characterization of thin films and heterostructures of various materials, mainly: ferroelectric oxides, molybdenum cluster sulfides, and metals. These developments are aimed essentially at integration in devices (microelectronics, sensors…). She is co-author of about 150 papers in the field of thin films.
