About the Speaker
Sylwester Latkowski obtained M.Sc. and Eng. degrees in optoelectronics and technical physics from the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, Poland. His research in the Centre for High-Speed Devices and Systems at Dublin City University, Ireland concerned with mode-locked semiconductor lasers, millimeter and terahertz generation, and all-optical data treatment has led to the award of a Ph.D. degree. He followed up his interests with the Photonic Integration group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), the Netherlands, focusing on test assembly and packaging of integrated photonics, photonic integration technologies, and on-chip laser systems for sensing applications. Along with his research activities, he supervises and co-supervises bachelor, master, and Ph.D. students. Sylwester is delivering annually a series of lectures on integrated photonics at the Warsaw University of Technology. He shares his university duties with the position of scientific director at the Photonic Integration Technology Center, an applied research center for photonic technologies. ​​​​​​​Sylwester’s professional activities include an active role in road-mapping initiatives for integrated photonics. He is a chair and co-chair of the electronic-photonic test Technical Working Group of the Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap International supported by AIM Photonics Academy and Photon Delta ecosystems. Sylwester has a sitting in the steering committee of the joint European platform for photonic integrated components and circuits, JePPIX. Sylwester is a senior member of IEEE and IEEE Photonics Society and a voting member of IEEE Standards Association, and Photonic Standards Committee. He is chair of the working group for the standardization of electronic-photonic design automation, IEEE SA P3112 He has authored and co-authored more than 135 publications in international scientific journals and conference proceedings.
