Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique 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 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.

This is the third biennial conference on High Power Lasers for Fusion Research. Our objective has been to showcase the continual progress made in high power laser development, which is associated with the goal of demonstrating inertial confinement fusion in the laboratory. In different parts of the world, scientists are making significant progress in constructing these large laser facilities (paper 1). In other parts, new laser subsystems are being added to develop novel diagnostics for visualizing and understanding the nature of the experimental reaction and possible methods of tuning (paper 16).

This year, the conference attracted twenty-six contributed and invited presentations in the areas of status of High Power Lasers Facilities around the world (with presentations from LLNL, LEA, ELI and RAL), High Power Optical Materials, Simulations and Experiments, and Laser Subsystems/Diagnostics. We were encouraged by the large number of attendees and the questions they asked every speaker. We attracted papers from many different countries around the globe including United States, France, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Germany, Russian Federation and China. There was also interest from the industry in presenting results of lasers and components which may find future application in high power lasers. We did not see any gaps in papers from this conference.
