Prior to joining Clemson University, Liang Dong served as senior technical manager at IMRA America Incorporated, R&D director at Lightwaves2020 Incorporated and R&D manager at Corvis Incorporated. He also worked as senior scientist at Corning Incorporated and managed optical fiber fabrication activities at Southampton University. Dr. Dong has over 20 years of experience in research and development in photonics and optical fibers, covering a wide range of topics in materials, designs, simulations, photosensitive processes, nonlinear processes, optical amplifiers, lasers, active/passive optical devices and system integrations for wide range applications such as telecommunications, industrial machining, medical and sensing. He is the author of several invited articles and book chapters, and has given a large number of invited talks at international conferences. He has published over 200 papers and has over 20 granted patents. He has also served as referee for a large number of journals in optics and telecommunications, member of conference committees, associate editor for IEEE Photonics Technology Letters and guest editor for Optical Fiber Technology. He currently serves as associated editor for IEEE Quantum Electronics, program chair for OSA topical meeting on Specialty Optical Fibers (SOF), and on program committees of Optical Fiber Communications Conference (OFC) and Advanced Solid State Photonics (ASSP).

In addition to his on-going interests in optical communications, his current focus is on development of specialty optical fibers for high power fiber lasers as well design and construction of robust practical high power fiber laser systems for industrial, medical and defense applications.
