Central Forensic Laboratory of the Police
Central Forensic Laboratory of the Police – Research Institute – is a leading national laboratory that performs casework. According to its statutory tasks, CFLP is responsible for the coordination of the trainings for candidates for forensic experts and field-related supervision over Police forensic laboratories. In the process of development and implementation of new examination methods, CFLP collaborates with the leading national and foreign forensic science specialists. Cooperation with the leading research centers provides CFLP with an opportunity to implement scientific and research projects that achieve high ratings and obtain funds from, inter alia, National Centre for Research and Development, as well as to participate in international projects, such as European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
CFLP organizes multiple scientific events dedicated to current forensic issues and for the participants representing national and international research institutes and academic centers, officers of security organisations and individuals from the branches offering cutting-edge equipment dedicated to forensic science area.

Institute of High Pressure Physic
Institute of High Pressure Physics (IHPP), also known as “Unipress”, was founded in 1972 by Polish Academy of Sciences. The Institute is directed by Prof. Izabella Grzegory. For the outline of Unipress history please see “history of Unipress” page.
Although the original focus of Unipress was on high-pressure studies of semiconductors, the present field of research activities also covers ceramics, HTc superconductors biological materials (high-pressure studies of protein folding, and high pressure food processing) and the plasticity of metals (hydroextrusion). The common axis of these studies is the use of high pressure, both as a research tool (a perturbation like temperature or magnetic field) and also as a technological method (high-pressure sintering, high-pressure growth of crystals).
For more than 20 years, Unipress’ scientists have worked intensively on the physics and technology of GaN and related semiconductors. This research led to the creation of a unique technology of high-pressure growth of GaN crystals with a dislocation density much lower than crystals grown at atmospheric pressure. This has paved the way to construction of blue/violet laser diodes by using crystals as substrates for growing epitaxial structures of (AlGaIn)N with exceptional structural and optical quality. Both the MBE and MOCVD nitride technology has been developed at UNIPRESS together with the laser-processing lab. The work on blue/violet laser diodes has been done within the Polish Government program titled “The development of the blue optoelectronics”, which was coordinated by Unipress. In order to commercialize this technology, new hi-tech focused company was founded.

TOMSAD Tomasz Sadowski was founded in 2011. The business area of the company is the manufacture and sale of memory programmers, car keys testers, programmer adapters, easy connectors as well as conduct training in automotive electronics and emergency car opening for mechanics, car diagnostician and law enforcement dealing with combating vehicle crime.
The company regularly participates in various trade fair and scientific conference in Poland and abroad which it presents diagnostic devices it manufactures.
In the period from 23/12/2013 to 31/03/2017 TOMSAD Tomasz Sadowski was one of the three partners of the scientific consortium in project No. DOBR-BIO4/037/13175/2013 “Acquisition of Data Encrypted in Vehicle/Machinery Electronic Components for Pre-court Proceedings” related to scientific research and studies for the purposes of national defense and security under the programme No. 4/2013. funded by the National Centre for Research and Development. As part of this project, TOMSAD Tomasz Sadowski has developed and built prototypes of two new devices: SMART CONNECT for starting and controlling devices on a workbench or directly in the vehicle, EASY DUMP for reading data stored in the memory of electronic components (e.g VIN, software version, etc.)
As part of this project, TOMSAD Tomasz Sadowski will develop and build innovative forensic light sources to reveal latent fingerprint with nanoparticles.
