Professional Accomplishments

Antoni Rogalski is a professor at the Institute of Applied Physics, Military University of Technology in Warsaw. During the course of his scientific career, he has made pioneering contributions in the areas of theory, design, and technology of different types of infrared (IR) detectors. In 1997, he received an award from the Foundation for Polish Science (the most prestigious scientific award in Poland) for achievements in the study of ternary alloy systems for IR detectors – mainly an alternative to HgCdTe new material systems such as lead salts, InAsSb, HgZnTe, and HgMnTe. In 2013 he was elected as an Ordinary Member of the Polish Academy of Sciences and a member of the Central Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles. From beginning of 2015 he is performing the deanship of the Faculty of Technical Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
Professor Rogalski’s scientific achievements include determining the fundamental parameters of narrow-gap semiconducting materials estimating the ultimate performance of IR detectors, elaborating on studies of high-quality PbSnTe, HgZnTe, HgCdTe and type-II superlattice photodiodes operated in IR spectral ranges; and conducting comparative studies of the performance limitation of HgCdTe photodiodes versus other types of photon detectors (especially QWIP, QDIP, and type-II superlattices) for third generation infrared detectors. His activity is focused on research of physical processes and phenomena conditioning the best quality detectors’ formation. His cooperation with Vigo System S.A. lasts about 20 years and is, in the Polish reality, an unique example of a cooperation between the academic research team and the High-Tech optoelectronic devices’ implementation company.
Professor Rogalski has given about 80 invited plenary talks (keynote speeches) at international conferences. He is author and co-author of about 300 indexed papers, cited ca. from 6200 to 12000 with h-index from 35 to 47 in dependence on scientific base (Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar), 13 books (7 books was published by SPIE Publisher), and 37 monographic papers (book chapters in handbooks and encyclopedias). His monumental monograph Infrared Detectors (published by Taylor and Francis in 2011) was translated on Russian and Chinese languages. Third edition of this book titled Infrared and Terahertz Detectors is scheduled to publish by Taylor and Francis in August 2018. Another monograph entitles High-Operating Temperature Infrared Photodetectors (published by SPIE Press, 2007) which he is the co-author, summarizes the globally unique Polish scientific and manufacturing achievements in the field of near room temperature long wavelength IR detectors. In April this year prof. Rogalski has published monograph Antimonide-based Infrared Detectors: A New Perspective. This book describes current concepts of antimonide-based infrared detectors, focusing on designs having the largest impact on the mainstream of infrared detector technologies  as a possible alternative to HgCdTe material systems.
Professor Rogalski is a fellow of the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), vice president of the Polish Optoelectronic Committee, editor-in-chief of the journal Opto-Electronics Review (1997-2015), deputy editor-in-chief of the Bulletin of the Polish Academy of Sciences: Technical Sciences, and a member of the editorial boards of Journal of Infrared and Millimeter Waves, International Review of Physics, International Journal of Electronics and Telecommunications, and Photonics Letters of Poland. He is an active member of the international technical community  a chair and co-chair, organizer and member of scientific committees of many national and international conferences on optoelectronic devices and material sciences.
