Marek Osinski received his Ph.D. in Physical Sciences from the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences in 1979. From 1980 till 1984, he was a Research Fellow at the Department of Electronics, Univ. of Southampton, England. In 1984-1985, he was a British Telecom Senior Associate of Research in Coherent Optical Communication at Cambridge University, England. He joined the University of New Mexico in 1985, where he is currently a Gardner-Zemke Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Physics & Astronomy, and Computer Science. He is currently serving as Program Director of NSF-funded IGERT on Integrating Nanotechnology with Cell Biology & Neuroscience.
Dr. Osinski has chaired 33 SPIE conferences/symposia, edited 28 SPIE Proceedings volumes, authored over 430 publications, 5 book chapters, and 12 patents.
Dr. Osinski is a Fellow of SPIE (2002) and of the Optical Society of America (2003). In 1992-2003, he served as North American Editor of Progress in Quantum Electronics.
His current research interests include synthesis and characterization of colloidal nanocrystals, nuclear radiation detectors, biomedical applications of colloidal quantum dots, development of semiconductor ring-laser-based rotation sensors, high-speed optoelectronic integrated circuits, modeling and simulation of optoelectronic devices, and growth and properties of novel optoelectronic materials.
