Collaborators

Małgorzata Szymura

Gosia graduated from Cardenal Stefan Wyszyński University in 2011. She went on to do her Ph.D. under Łukasz Kłopotowski at the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Her thesis was devoted to photoluminescence properties of ZnTe nanowires, which she defended in 2018. Since then she has been working on self-assembled and colloidal quantum dots containing copper ions.

Bożena Sikora

Bożena graduated from Faculty of Chemistry, Warsaw University in 2008. She then joined the team of Danek Elbaum at the Institute of Physics and did her Ph.D. on design and properties of biosensors based on colloidal ZnO and upconverting NaYF4 nanoparticles. She defended her thesis in 2014. Since then she is working on applications of up-converting nanoparticles
in photodynamic therapy.

Oksana Volnianska

Oksana  started her Ph.D. at the Institute of Physics under Piotr Bogusławski in 2009. She worked on theory of impurity-induced magnetism in bulk semiconductors. She is now investigating the impact of dopants on the band structure of semiconducting nanocrystals.

Anna Borodziuk

Ania studied at the University of Bialystok and graduated from the University of Warsaw in 2016. She then joined Danek Elbaum group at the Institute of Physics. Since 2017 she is doing her Ph.D. under the supervision of Łukasz Kłopotowski and Bożena Sikora. She is developing strategies to improve the efficacies of photodynamic therapy based on up-converting NaYF4 nanoparticles.

Miriam Karpińska

Miriam graduated from Wrocław University of Technology in 2018. She then started her Ph.D. at the Institute of Physics under Łukasz Kłopotowski. In 2019, she started a co-tutelle Ph.D. with Universite Toulouse III with Paulina Plochocka as the co-supervisor. Miriam is investigating exciton properties of transition metal dichalcogenide heterostructures.

Magdalena Duda

Magda graduated from the University of Warsaw in 2018. Afterwards, she started her Ph.D. at the Institute of Physics under Łukasz Kłopotowski and Bożena Sikora. She is engineering the properties of up-converting nanoparticles and I-III-V group compound nanocrystals for applications in biology and medicine.

Adam Ćwilich

Adam is a student at the University of Warsaw. He is working on experiment and theory of  optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures.
