Gong Ru Lin received his B.S. degree in physics from Soochow University in 1988, an M.S. and Ph.D. degrees of electro-optical engineering from the National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Taiwan, in 1990 and 1996, respectively. He serves currently as the Deputy Chair of the Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics and appointed with the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University. He was appointed the 2008 Fellow of the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), 2009 Fellow of the Institute of Electronics and technology (IET), and 2010 Fellow of the Institute of Physics (IOP). He works also as a Senior Member of the Optical Society of America (OSA), and a Senior Member of Lasers and Electro-Optics (LEOS), and the Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTTs) Societies of the IEEE. He has served in SPIE as the Award Committee (since 2003), the Secretary of Taiwan Chapter (since 2004), and the Vice Chair of Taiwan Chapter (since 2006). He has been the Treasurer (since 2004) and serves currently as the Vice Chair of the IEEE/LEOS Taipei Chapter. He authored more than 190 papers in international journals and over 300 papers in international conferences. Currently, he is involved in the steering committee or technical program committee of several OSA- and IEEE-sponsored international conferences and topical workshops such as TPC of OSA Conference of Nanophotonics, TPC of IEEE Conference on Optical MEMS and Nanophotonics, the International Organizing Committee of the IEEE Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics, and the Steering Committee of Asia-Pacific Microwave Photonics. He focuses his research interests on light emitters and nanophotonic devices using silicon quantum dots and silicon carbide. He also investigates the ultrafast phenomenon of nano-scale carbon and graphite, and the single- or multilayer graphene for their application in femtosecond lasers and photonics.
