,,Towards Multi-Parameter Sensing by means of Geometrically and Structurally Modified Fiber Bragg Gratings"

Tomasz Osuch received (with honors) his PhD from National Institute of Telecommunications (2010), and DSc from Warsaw University of Technology (2017). He is currently an assistant professor and team leader of Fiber Optic Sensors and Measurement Systems Group at Warsaw University of Technology as well as an associate professor and team leader of Optoelectronics Metrology Group at National Institute of Telecommunications. His current research interests include modeling, technology and applications of fiber optic sensors (especially periodic structures, such as: fiber Bragg gratings) as well as fiber optic metrology and measurement systems. He is an author or co-author of more than 100 journal publications and conference contributions. He paticipated in several research projects in the area of optics and photonics. He is a member of PSP (Photonics Society of Poland) and PTTS (Polish Society of Sensing Technique). Tomasz Osuch is also a member of two working groups for National Smart Specializations: KIS-13 Photonics, KIS-9 Sensors (including biosensors) and smart sensor networks of the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology, as well as a representative member of the Polish Committee for Standardization - Technical Committee No. 282 on Fiber Optics. Since 2019 he is a member of Editorial Board of International Journal of Optics. He is also an active reviewer in more than 20 JCR journals in the area of photonics and metrology.

Prof. Janusz M. Smulko

Gdańsk University of Technology, Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics Department of Metrology and Optoelectronics, G. Narutowicza 11/12, 80-233 Gdańsk, Poland

,,UV-Light Modulated Gas Sensing''

Janusz M. Smulko was born in Kolno, Poland. He received his M.Sc., Ph.D., and D.Sc. Degrees in electronics from Gdańsk University of Technology, Poland, in 1989, 1996, and 2007, respectively. Presently, he is a full professor (since 2016), Head of the Metrology and Optoelectronics Department (since 2012), and was Vice-Rector for Research of the Gdańsk University of Technology (2016-2019). He had also conducted scientific research in short-term positions at Texas A&M University (2003), Uppsala University (2006/07), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2011, 2013). As a researcher, he focuses on the applications of 1/f noise for gas sensing and reliability assessment of electronic components and structures, the influence of noise on detection efficiency in Raman spectroscopy systems. He was a member of the Committee on Metrology and Scientific Instrumentation of the Polish Academy of Science (2011-2020), Editor-in-Chief of Metrology and Measurement Systems Journal (2013-2020), and an Editor of Sensor Journal. He published more than 150 papers, promoted seven doctorate thesis, and managed numerous research projects.
