Personal profile


Krystian Wlodarczyk graduated from the Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland) in 2006 with a MSc (mgr inż.) degree in Electronics and Telecommunication and from Heriot-Watt University in 2011 with a PhD degree in Physics.

Following his PhD study, he joined the High Power Laser Applications group (http://www.aop.hw.ac.uk/) at Heriot-Watt University as a Postdoc Research Associate.  In September 2013, he became a member of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Laser-based Production Processes (http://www.cim-laser.ac.uk).  In September 2016, Krystian joined the Research Centre for Carbon Solutions (https://rccs.hw.ac.uk) where his work is focused on the fabrication and testing of 3D replicas of porous media, which are used to validate numerical simulations of fluid flow, transport and reactive processes in hydrocarbon rocks.

Research interests

Krystian's research is focused on the investigation and development of laser-based processes for precision manufacturing. This includes CO2 laser polishing and ultrashort-pulsed laser micromachining of glass substrates, laser cutting and drilling of thin flex glass, laser joining of transparent materials, as well as laser texturing and marking of metal substrates. He is also interested in the use of adaptive optics (e.g. deformable mirrors, spatial light modulators) for laser materials processing applications.
