Owner's profile

{MJ photo} Dr. Miroslaw Jonasz (m.jonasz@mjcopticaltech.com) obtained his Ph.D. degree in physics in 1980 (Polish Academy of Sciences). Before founding his firm in 1991, he held research positions at the Polish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm University (Sweden), and Dalhousie University (Canada). He also held senior R&D engineering positions at Technicon Instruments Corporation (USA), a major manufacturer of optics-based clinical instrumentation.

Dr. Jonasz has over 26-years experience in design and development of optical instrumentation in academic and industrial environments. He has comparable experience in development of computer software for numerical modeling and simulation, as well as software for analysis and archival of experimental data.

Dr. Jonasz is the author of over 40 scientific and technical publications.
