  • Warsaw University of Technology

  • Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology


He is a 1978 graduate of the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology, Warsaw University of Technology. He was subsequently awarded his doctoral degree in 1985 and habilitation in 1990. In 2004 he was awarded the title of full professor. He is the head of the Optoelectronics Division of the Institute of Microelectronics and Optoelectronics, WUT. Recipient of French state scholarships, he conducted research in Laboratoire de Spectrometrie Physique at Université de Grenoble (1981) and Laboratoire de Physico-Chimie des Matériaux Luminescents in Lyon (1981-1982). For nearly two years he was a tenured professor at Blaise Pascal University in Clermont-Ferrand.

His scientific interests deal with the synthesis, characterization and spectroscopic properties of crystalline, nanocrystalline, amorphous and hybrid systems containing lanthanide and transition metal ions. This includes, spectroscopic characterization of new laser and photonic materials, research and development of planar and fiber lasers and studies of various rare-earth activated nano-phosphors. Most recently, M. Malinowski has focused part of his research to applying rare-earth insights to improve the efficiency of solar cells by proposing new photon converting materials. Also recently, he develops high temperature spectroscopy of rare-earth doped crystals and nanocrystals for luminescence thermometry applications.

He has published more than 300 scholarly works, including 5 monographs and books, and more than 100 articles in journals from the ISI Master Journal List. He has given over 30 invited talks at international conferences and schools, several of them as plenary or keynote speaker. Malinowski’s articles received over 1200 citations.

He has been teaching numerous courses in the fields of photonics such as; Fundamentals of Photonics, Integrated Optics, Photonic Integrated Circuits for Optical Logic, Spectroscopic Methods and others.
