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 new material systems alternative to HgCdTe such as lead salts, InAsSb, HgZnTe, and HgMnTe. In 2013 he was elected as an Ordinary Member of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PASs) and a member of the Central Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles. Since early 2015, he has been the Dean of the Faculty of Technical Sciences of the PASs, and from 2016 – a member of commision for affairs of scientific awards of Prime Minister of Poland.

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, type-II superlattices, and 2D materials). He has been collaborating with the firm Vigo System S.A. for about 20 years now, a unique example in Poland of cooperation between an academic research team and a company producing high-tech optoelectronic devices.

Professor Rogalski has given about 80 invited plenary talks (keynote speaker) at international conferences. He is author and co-author of about 300 indexed papers, cited ca. from 8600 to 16000 with h-index above 40 to 52 in dependence on scientific base (Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar), 14 books published by global publishing houses, and 20 book chapters including handbooks and encyclopaedias. His monumental monograph Infrared and Terahertz Detectors (third edition, published by Taylor and Francis, 2020), has been translated on Russian and Chinese languages. 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.

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 (2003-present), and a member of the editorial boards of Opto-Electronics Review (2015-present), 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.
