About the authors

Gang-Ding Peng received his B.Sc. degree in physics from Fudan University, Shanghai, China, in 1982, and the M.Sc. degree in applied physics and Ph.D. in electronic engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, in 1984 and 1987, respectively. From 1987 through 1988 he was a lecturer at Jiao Tong University. He was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Optical Sciences Centre of the Australian National University, Canberra, from 1988 to 1991. He has been working at the University of NSW in Sydney, Australia, since 1991; was a Queen Elizabeth II Fellow from 1992 to 1996; and is currently a professor in the same university. He is a fellow and life member of both Optical Society of America (OSA) and The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE). His research interests include silica and polymer optical fibers, optical fiber and waveguide devices, optical fiber sensors, and nonlinear optics. He has worked in research and teaching in photonics and fiber optics for more than 30 years and maintained a high research profile internationally.
