Artur Bednarkiewicz received his MSc Eng. in Physics and Biomedical Engineering from the Wroclaw University of Technology in Wroclaw, Poland, in 1993 and a PhD, habilitation and Institute professorship in Physics from the Institute of Low Temperature and Structure Research, Polish Academy of Sciences, in 1998, 2013 and 2015 respectively. After postdoctoral research in the European Commission Joint Research Centre, Italy, in December 2008 he returned to ILT&SR PAS and simultaneously established an interdisciplinary team NAOMIS with the Wroclaw Research Center EIT+ focusing on Nanoparticle Assisted Molecular Imaging and Sensing. Currently, he is Head of Laboratory of Biospectroscopy and Biosensing in WRC EIT+, and assistant professor in ILT&SR PAS. His current interdisciplinary research focuses on * optical (bio)spectroscopy; * novel designs of lanthanide doped nanoparticles biolabels towards photon avalanche, stimulated emission depletion microscopy, thermometry, biosensing; * optical and spatial light modulation engineering, as well as on pure physics, spectroscopy and chemistry of lanthanide doped materials.
