Agnieszka Pieniążek is a Ph.D. student at Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences (Warsaw, Poland).Agnieszka graduated from Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in the field of experimental physics in 2012 and analytical chemistry in 2013. Prior to starting Ph.D. study she worked as a chemist in Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology. Her current research interests lie in the area of energy transfer, radiative and nonradiative recombination processes in ZnO nanostructures, growth and characterization of bulk and epitaxial II-VI compounds. She specializes in following analysis techniques: scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy, cathodoluminescence spectroscopy and imaging.


We have fabricated axial ZnO/ZnMgO multiple quantum well (MQW) heterostructures consisting of five ZnO wells with different thicknesses separated by thin ZnMgO barriers on the top of ZnO microrods and investigated the optical... [ view full abstract ]
