Biography

W. Strupinski has more than 30 years’ experience in III-V semiconductor compounds nanotechnology for micro- and opto electronics, silicon carbide compounds for high-power electronics, graphene and other 2D nanomaterials. He specializes in vapor phase epitaxy and metallorganic vapor phase epitaxy of GaAs-, InP-, GaN-related, SiC, graphene and other 2D materials.

His research interest includes transistors, microwave diodes, varactors, F-P, VCSEL, QC lasers, photodetectors, waveguides, LEDs, QDs, SOA, etc. He has developed many epitaxial technologies which later were successfully used in experimental or commercial production.

He also has expertise in developing and managing projects for government and the EU, such as the Graphene Flagship Project.

He was awarded the 2012 Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland Prize for Outstanding Scientific Achievements for graphene research, the 2014 Jan Wejchert Prize of the Polish Business Roundtable in Vision and Innovation Category and the Bronze Laurel in the Leaders of Polish Economy ranking by "Gazeta Bankowa" in the Scientist of the Year Category.

He is a founder and president of globally recognized company Epitaxial Nano Technology SA producing electronic materials. He received his PhD in physics from Warsaw University of Technology in 1988 (h-index: 23; number of papers >230; sum of the times cited: 2383).
