Industry Appointments


  1. 1981 – 1988 Systems Engineer, Project Manager, WILMER, Scientific Apparatus Production Company of The Polish Academy of Science.


  1. 1989 – 1990 Project Manager, Crystal Growth Laboratory, Start-Up Company of The Warsaw University.





The first decade of his professional career (1980-1991) A/Prof. Antoszewski spent as a full time research engineer and project manager in IR R&D industry in Poland. During this time A/Prof. Antoszewski had very limited opportunities for publishing.

In 1992 Prof. Antoszewski joined Microelectronics Research Group (MRG) at UWA where he extended his qualifications by obtaining M.Eng.Sci. degree in 1994. Since January 1994 A/Prof. Antoszewski has been employed full time at UWA on successively renewed research contracts (Research Fellow 1994-2003, Principal Research Fellow 2004-2009, and A/Professor since 2009) with 100% research and supervising Master and PhD students.


During last 10 years, with his research co-workers, A/Prof. Antoszewski received $1,437M from ARC Discovery Projects, $440k from ARC LIEF, $1,090M from ARC LP plus $2,415M of international industrial cash contribution, $399k from GRDC, $20k from DST Group, and $46k from Agilent Technologies.


A/Prof. Antoszewski is a joint winner of The John de Laeter Award 1997 for Quantitative Mobility Spectrum Analysis (QMSA), and joint winner of 2008 Eureka Prize for Science in Support of Defence or National Security for “Microspectrometer sensing technology for future combat systems”.


He is author and co-author of 190 journal and conference publications with journal h-index=23. He is holder of two international patents. 


His ARC funded Discovery project (Antoszewski, Musca, DP0346370, $303k, 2003-2005) “New generation of hyperspectral infrared photon detectors” and encouraging research outcomes triggered a series of collaborative projects funded by: US DARPA $1.5M in 2003, Australian GRDC $2.4M in 2008-2013, US Goodrich/UTAS $3.5M in 2012-2015, and $2.9 million from Australia’s Defence Next Generation Technologies Fund in 2018-2021.


Over the years of his employment at UWA, except of all typical researcher duties such as performing experiments, running and supervising research projects, supervising student’s work in laboratories, and publishing, Prof. Antoszewski was instrumental in refurbishment of existing and design of new MRG laboratories including nanofabrication facility (class 1000 clean room). He supervised tools installation, and commissioning of MRG nanofabrication facility (2002/2003).

During following years (until 2008) he was managing the nanofabrication facility and supervising day to day student’s research work there.


In 2010 and 2011 Prof. Antoszewski supervised $1.5M extensive refurbishment and upgrade of MRG MBE facility and since then is the manager of this facility.


In 2017 he was heavily involved in the design and construction of the new facilities at Faculty of Engineering to accommodate/relocate existing research laboratories including new clean room for MBE. 


A/Prof. Antoszewski has been working in the field of semiconductor materials, devices fabrication and characterisation since he joined MRG at UWA in 1992. His collaboration with US Naval Research Laboratory (Washington) has resulted in the development of a unique semiconductor characterisation method Quantitative Mobility Spectrum Analysis (QMSA) which is extremely useful for semiconductor material evaluation prior to device fabrication. He demonstrated applicability of QMSA to different semiconductor structures such as HgCdTe, AlGaAs/GaAs and AlGaN/GaN HEMTs. Consequently, as an expert in the field of electrical transport characterisation techniques in semiconductors he was invited to participate in the project run by US National Institute of Standards for developing reliable Hall effect measurement standards for GaAs based materials.


Since 1996 A/Prof. Antoszewski expanded his research into development of technology for infrared detectors. He participated in the development of state of the art n on p-type junction formation technology using a Reactive Ion Etching process (the core of IR detector technology at UWA), and development of the HgCdTe passivation technology. His research on near room temperature operating HgCdTe photodetectors has resulted in demonstration of high performance IR detectors and small detector arrays. Recently (2018), he demonstrated fabrication of fully operational large size HgCdTe based infrared imaging arrays



From 2004, A/Prof. Antoszewski became also heavily involved in the UWA MEMS program, funded initially by ARC, then DARPA (US), GRDC (Australia) and more recently Goodrich/UTAS (US), and DST Group via Grand Challenge Program. In these projects he has been responsible for development of device fabrication and integration technologies. This work resulted in demonstration of the first worldwide monolithically integrated micro-spectrometer based on integration of MEMS and HgCdTe technologies.
