Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print and on CD-ROM. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique, consistent, permanent citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first 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, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:

  • The first four 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. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages. Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit CID Number.

Author Index

Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four 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.

Welcome to our annual event in beautiful San Diego. While our conference has been going on for more than two decades, we should not take it for granted. Its continuity depends on the creativity of its participants (many of whom are in this room) and the vitality of the subject of nonimaging optics. On this point, you will see that the program has many innovative presentations. There is a nexus of nonimaging optics and energy that is very much “in the air”. For example, concentrating photovoltaics at the nanoscale takes advantage of the efficiency of nonimaging optics at the diffraction limit.

I want to recognize Professor J. C. Minano, a pioneer in our field and the most recent recipient of the Optical Society of America Joseph Fraunhofer Award/Robert M. Burley prize. Let us hope this becomes a tradition. Finally, I want acknowledge our co-chair Professor Jeffrey M. Gordon, himself a distinguished contributor to our field, for his tireless efforts in putting together an exciting program.
