Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a seven-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first five digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the seven-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first five digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

This year the conference was expanded to start the conversation on the new high power blue laser diode technology which is emerging as a new tool for the industrial markets. The conference included several talks on the new high power blue products aimed at welding copper and other materials with high reflectivity in the IR compared to the blue. Attendance was standing room only and discussions were filled with questions about the technology and its applications. We plan to expand this section of the conference next year and expect a number of new companies to join the development of this new and exciting technology.

The high-power IR laser diode talks also did not disappoint, the march to higher and higher brightness laser diode products continue. The results were best summarized in a talk by nLIGHT Corporation (United States) where they plotted the improvement in brightness as a function of time. The brightness of the diode laser product line have now eclipsed the brightness of high power lamp pumped solid state lasers and are starting to challenge the multi-mode diode pumped solid state lasers. Higher power bars, better cooling methods and better micro-optics were all part of the conference as well.
