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.


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.

Over the past half century, the field of fiber optics has undergone a quantum leap. We have seen tremendous technological progress in photonics for the aviation, aerospace and transportation industries in harsh environments. Information, intelligence, and data are transferred from one point to another more quickly and precisely than ever thought possible due to these recent advancements. It is envisioned that fiber optics shall become as ubiquitous as copper wire with superior reliability and robustness properties.

Optics and photonics greatly benefitted from the synergy with the telecommunications industry resulting in a number of new technologies including micro-packaging of optics components, aircraft photonics networks, micro and nano-sensors, see-through wearables, head-mounted displays, and phase-shifted fiber Bragg gratings for materials health monitoring.

We are fortunate to be among the pioneers of this exciting and rapidly changing field. The technological achievements are the result of solid engineering, dedication, and innovation. This book contains a series of papers which discuss leading edge technologies and state-of-the- art optics and fiber optic sensor technologies for photonics in aerospace and transportation industries including: advanced technologies for cryogenic liquid level detection of hydrogen for space applications to a new generation of smart fiber optic sensors, a novel implementation of wearable glass, micro satellite systems, micro and nano in optoelectronics and wireless sensor monitoring systems.

Today a significant proportion of the world’s communications are carried by fiber optic cables. Fiber optic technology has revolutionized the telecommunication market and is rapidly becoming a major player in information technology and aviation industries.

This year we had the highest number of entries with a total of 56 papers which included numerous papers in the field of optoelectronics. As a result we are very grateful to all of the authors and behalf of the SPIE and myself would like to take this opportunity to thank the 56 papers presented by distinguished authors from around the world and for their valuable contributions, particularly by Dr. Bernard Kress of Google X (United States), Dr. Edgar Mendoza from Redondo Optics, Inc. (United States), Professor Syed Murshid from Florida Institute of Technology (United States), Professor Abraham Ishihara of Carnegie Mellon University (United States), Professor Nicolas Javahiraly of University of Strasbourg (France), Professor Bernard Dam of Techische University Deft (Netherland), Professor Fumio Futami from Tamagawa University (Japan), Dr. M. Alam for University of Toronto (Canada), Dr. Dan Curticapean (Germany), Professor Chi-Wai Chow of National Chiao Tung University (Taiwan), Dr. B. Srinvasan from Indian Institute of Technology, Dr. Dipankar Sengupta from Università degli Studi di Padova (Italy), Dr. K. Sarayeddline of OPTIVENT. S.A. (France), Dr. Josef Vojtech from CESNET (Czech Republic), Dr. Shyam Bayya of U.S. Naval Research Lab. (United States), Dr. Nezih Mrad from Defense Research and Development (Canada), Dr. Michael Buric from National Energy Technology Lab. (United States), Dr. Shyam Bayya and Dr. Jony Jiang Liu from U.S. Army Research Lab. for outstanding papers they presented in this book.

I also would like to thank my management at The Boeing Co. and the SPIE personnel for their diligent and support in publication of this book.
