Grzegorz (Greg) Greczynski is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics, Linköping University (LiU). He heads the Fundamental Science of Thin Films Group of the Thin Film Physics Division and is one of the pioneers in high-power pulsed magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS) research through his present position at LiU and his previous employment at Chemfilt Ionsputtering, the original HiPIMS company. Greczynski received his PhD degree in surface science of organic materials in 2001 and has an eight-year industrial track record. In 2018 he was nominated Fellow of the American Vacuum Society for “seminal contributions to nondestructive XPS surface analysis, and the development of novel next-generation HiPIMS metal-ion deposition techniques”. His research interests are presently focused on low-energy ion/surface interactions (including both gas and metal ions) for nanostructure control during low-temperature growth of transition-metal-based nitride, boride, and carbide thin films by physical vapor deposition. In addition, Greczynski is also active in the field of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), with the aim to develop nondestructive analysis methods and to enhance the reliability of the technique. He has published 113 papers with more than 3700 citations.
