Alicja Bachmatiuk, Łukasiewicz – PORT

She defended her master’s thesis in chemical technology at the Szczecin University of Technology in 2005, in 2009 she obtained her Ph.D. degree at the same university. She obtained a postdoctoral degree in chemical sciences at the Warsaw University of Technology in 2017. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at IFW Dresden, Germany, as a scholarship holder of RTN Marie Curie and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (2009-2012). She worked as a Research Professor (2013-2015) at Sungkyunkwan University, Suwon, South Korea. Since 2013 she has been conducting research on the production and characterization of two-dimensional materials, including graphene in cooperation with Polish and foreign research units. From 2015 she is a visiting professor at Soochow University, Suzhou, China. Winner of the Ministry of Education’s scholarship for outstanding young scientists (2016), implemented 3 research grants (Alexander von Humboldt, FNP Homing Plus, NCN Sonata). Currently, the manager of three research grants from the National Science Center, FNP and National Center for Research and Development.

Joanna Cybińska, Łukasiewicz – PORT

Joanna Cybińska, Ph.D. is the Leader Advanced Materials Synthesis Group [AdMat Group] in Łukasiewicz Research Network – PORT Polish Center for Technology Development. Graduated from the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Wroclaw, her reseach activitiy is mainly concentrated on the on synthesis and optical investigations of inorganic luminophors, including crystals, but also nanomaterials, doped with lanthanide ions as luminescent centers. She has been one of the Handling Editors of Optical Materials (Elsevier). She was secretary of many International conferences including : Excited States of Transition Elements and Workshop on Luminescence (ESTE2010 and ESTE2016), International Conference on Luminescence and Optical Spectroscopy of Solids (ICL14), International Conference on Rare Earth Materials (REMAT) Advances in Synthesis, Studies and Applications, REMAT2013 and IS-OM8th.

Kacper A. Prokop – Symposium Chair

During my bachelor studies of Medical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, University of Wrocław, I joined the Luminescent Materials Group under the supervision of dr Joanna Cybińska. Earning my first academic degree on the research focused on Nd3+-doped LuPO4 micro and nanopowders allowed me to be recognised locally (finalist in the Golden Medal in Chemistry 2019 contest awarded by Institute of Physical Chemistry Polish Academy of Science) and internationally (Congratulations of the Jury for a poster presentation at the Photoluminescence in Rare Earths: Photonic Materials and Devices, 2019, Nice). Currently my passion for science is being developed as studying a master degree in Medical Chemistry at the University of Wrocław and working at Łukasiewicz – PORT.

Jakub Pawłów – Scientific Secretary

My adventure with luminescent materials has begun during my bachelor studies at the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Wrocław. On the second year of studying Medicinal Chemistry under the supervision of dr. Joanna Cybińska, I started working in the Luminescent Materials Group. Thanks to this cooperation, my bachelor thesis on YPO4 micro-powders doped with Nd3+ ions was created. The research on this compound was extended and the results were presented at international conferences in Wrocław and Nice. Now I am broadening my scientific horizons researching for a master’s degree at the University of Wrocław and working in Łukasiewicz – PORT.

Maria Zdończyk – Scientific Secretary

During my master’s studies, I joined the Luminescent Materials Group, where my supervisor was Dr. Joanna Cybińska. I worked in projects concerning luminescent dyes, ionic liquids for photonics, and lanthanide orthophosphates nanoparticles during my studies. After the first year of studies, I received a scholarship from the Minister of Science and Higher Education for outstanding scientific achievements.I am currently researching orthophosphates nanoparticle synthesis and organic dyes while working in the Łukasiewicz – PORT.
