Adam Filipkowski

PhD, postdoc

University of Warsaw

Adam Filipkowski has joined Institute of Electronic Materials Technology in Warsaw and begun working on drawing and later designing micro and nanostructured fibers in 2009. He received his PhD in 2016 from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, UK. During his PhD he was heavily involved in development and synthesis of PMMA based polymers for nanostructured GRIN lens fabrication. Following PhD graduation, he continued working at Institute of Electronic Materials Technology in Warsaw. During his work at the Institute he was involved in development of nanostructured optical elements, such as the World’s smallest GRIN lenses and vortices made from borosilicate soft glasses and silica glasses. He contributed to the field of structured fibers by presenting achromatic GRIN lens singlets and nanostructured lenses with large internal diffusion. In 2018 he won gold medal for Nanostructured core optical fibre at International Warsaw Invention Show IWIS2018. During his work he extensively collaborated with leading labs in Europe, among others as a researcher in H2020 MSCA ITN consortium “SUPUVIR” and in ICT project “MIREGAS”. From 2016 he also collaborated with B-Phot, Brussels.Photonics lab on development of polymer based structured fibre. In 2020 he joined University of Warsaw, Faculty of Physics, where he became member of one of four research teams pursuing novel sensors utilizing nano-diamond-modified glass platforms as a member of Foundation for Polish Science TEAM-NET consortium “QUNNA”.
