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’s conference contained an informative mix of millimetre wave and terahertz sensing technologies including spectroscopy up to 2.5 THz, radar systems at a range of frequencies from 10 GHz to 200 GHz and some emerging biometric security screening systems.

In the lower frequency bands full polarimetric radar concepts have been developed for security screening. There was an analysis of the detection process in low-cost glow discharge detectors and methods to increase the terahertz emission from semiconductor switches used in spectrometers and systems requiring illumination. Terahertz radiation has been used to measure the properties of graphene samples and chemical methods are developed to increase the penetration of terahertz radiation in samples for diagnostic purposes. Results were also presented on the remote sensing of moisture content in outside building walls, in an effort to understand heating losses in buildings. Work continued to be presented on the use of aperture synthesis, specifically on the design of low cost cross-correlators with hundreds of channels and on the field-of-views and spatial resolutions of portal security screening systems based on this modality of imaging.
