Slawomir Braun born in Wiecbork, Poland. Studied technical physics at University of Technology and Life Sciences in Bydgoszcz, Poland. As an exchange student within European Union (EU) programme: Erasmus-Socrates, he wrote his undergraduate thesis in the Applied Optics group at Linköping University. In 2007, he received his Ph.D.degree in the group of Prof. William Salaneck at Linkoping University, Sweden. He is currently reasearch associate in the group of Prof. Mats Fahlman. His current interests are focused on organic-organic interfaces and interfacial engineering for optimization of organic electronic devices. He has an extensive experience in the industrial colaboration through the R&D projects with Agfa Geavert, DuPont, Merck Chemicals, Ciba (BASF) and Cambridge Display Technology Ltd.
