At 1931 he was hired at the State Optics Institute and had been working in Infrared Optics Laboratory for many years. Before WWII he taught physics in Mozhaisky Military Space Academy.

After WWII he became lecturer in LITMO. He occupied the following positions: Professor of General Physics Department (1945-1948); Head of the Infrared Optics Department (1948-1954); Professor (1954-1956, 1965-1967) and the Head of the Physical Optics and Spectroscopy Department (1956-1965).

Mark Veyngerov received the following science degrees: PhD (1930); Docent (1935); Doctor Nauk (1940), Professor (1942).

He designed Infrared Radiation Detector on the basis of Bimetallic Plate Vacuum Diode (1932), designed Selective Optic-Acoustical Detector -- Spectrophone with wide sensitivity spectrum (1937). In collaboration with S.M. Luchin designed non-selective Optic-Acoustical Detector (1941).[6]

He was Awarded USSR State Prize in 1946 for developing of Express Optic-Acoustical Gas Analysis. Also awarded Order of the Badge of Honour and other medals.[7]
