Jerzy Kanicki received his Ph.D. degree in Sciences (D.Sc.) from the Free University of Brussels (Universite Libre de Bruxeles), Brussels, Belgium, in 1982. His dissertation research work involved the Optical, electrical, and photovoltaic properties of undoped and doped trans-polyacetylene. He subsequently joined the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, New York, as a Research Staff Member working on hydrogenated amorphous silicon devices for photovoltaic and flat panel display applications. In 1994 he moved from IBM Research Division to the University of Michigan as a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. At the University of Michigan from 1994 to 2000 he did leading work on various Flat Panel Display technologies. He started work in 2000 on a variety of fundamental problems related to Organic & Molecular Electronics. In 2002-2003 he spent a sabbatical year at the Center for Polymers and Organic Solids, University of California, Santa Barbara conducting research in the area of conducting polymer devices. He is the author and co-author of over 250 publications in journals and conference proceedings. He has edited two books and three conference proceedings. Jerzy presented numerous invited talks at national and international meetings in the area of organic and inorganic semiconductor devices.
