Adam Wojciechowski

Team Leader

Jagiellonian University in Krakow

Adam M. Wojciechowski received M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland in 2007 and 2011, respectively. During his academic career, he worked on precision atomic spectroscopy techniques for sensing applications, with a strong focus on ultra-sensitive magnetometry. One of his achievements is the first observation of nonlinear Faraday effect in a cold atomic ensemble - rubidium vapor at ~10 µK. Recently, his scientific interests also include spectroscopy of diamond color centers. During his post-doctoral fellowship at Technical University of Denmark (2015-2017, DTU, Copenhagen), he worked on magnetic detection of neural activity in brain tissue. This work led to the development of quasi-2D magnetic field sensors that enable spatial imaging of weak magnetic fields with micrometer spatial resolution. He is now leading the young research team at the Jagiellonian University aiming at the development of novel sensing platforms and techniques based on nanodiamonds with particular focus on bio-diagnostic applications.
