Wieslaw Jakubik was born in Cieszyn, Poland, in 1964. He received the Technical Physics degree and the Ph.D. degree from the Silesian University of Technology (SUT), Gliwice, Poland, in 1989 and 1998, respectively. Since 1989, W.Jakubik is with the Institute of Physics of SUT at Optoelectronic Department and Applied Physics Department. From 2009 to 2010, he was a Deputy Director at the Institute of Physics of SUT. From 2004 to 2006, Dr. Jakubik was a Manager of the scientific grant in the field of surface acoustic wave gas sensors. Presently, he is a Lecturer of physics and works in the field of gas sensors. He is mainly interested in gas sensors systems: with surface acoustic waves (SAW), layered sensor elements, acoustoelectric SAW sensors, bulk acoustic wave (BAW) sensors, and biosensors. In 2002, he published (with M. Urbanczyk) the idea of SAW hydrogen gas sensors with bi-layer sensor elements, which was a base to American and Polish patents. He presented his achievements at the conferences in 1995 (Trondheim), 2002 (Covilgha, Portugal), 2004 (IEEE Sensors, TU Wien), 2005 (Los Angeles ECS Meeting), 2005 (Budapest, Forum Acusticum), 2006 (Goeteborg, Eurosensors), 2009 (Lausane, Eurosensors). He serves as a Reviewer of the IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control; IEEE Electron Device Letters; IEEE Sensor Journal; Sensors and Actuators A and B; Sensor Letters; and Central European Journal of Physics (CEJP). He is also a Member of The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), Bellingham, Wash, USA.
