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.

Optical components are crucial for laser performance and form a foundation for advances in laser science and technology. All around the globe, vast and constantly growing research efforts are dedicated to developing new and more advanced laser components and systems. Along this line, packaging solutions for optical components enable their most efficient and consistent integration in laser systems. Laser component packaging is decisive for stable and reliable laser operations while not only improving laser characteristics but also enabling broader laser usability and applications.

Cross-listed between the LASE and OPTO symposia of SPIE Photonics West, the Components and Packaging for Laser Systems conference is primarily focused on achievements and progress made in the field of optical components and packaging technology for laser systems such as semiconductor lasers, solid state lasers, fiber lasers, gas lasers, continuous-wave and pulsed lasers, ultra-short pulsed lasers, and others. Examples of optical components for lasers include macro- and micro-optic lenses and arrays, diffractive and holographic elements, coating technology, polarization optics, fiber optic connectors, couplers, splitters, and isolators, laser gain media, beam transformation systems, components for ultra-short pulsed lasers, components for coherent and spectral beam combining, mid-IR elements, novel design methodologies, and advanced manufacturing techniques. Examples of packaging technology include assembly and mounting solutions of optical components, thermal management and packaging approaches in high-power lasers, laser array packaging and lensing, novel active and passive alignment techniques, laser system reliability, and package modelling.

This conference was created to address a gap in the technical program at Photonics West. Specifically, the developers working on component and packaging technologies (especially those common to several classes of laser systems) did not have a dedicated venue where they could present to their colleagues, customers, and suppliers. Prior to the creation of this conference, such talks would either be relegated to conferences specific to one laser system class, or more commonly, not be presented at all. In this inaugural year, our strong international committee comprising engineers and scientists from academia and industry did an outstanding job of building up and promoting this new conference, as evidenced by the large number of high quality papers we received. We were also delighted to see very strong attendance of the presentations throughout the week, and before an overflow room was designated, almost all seats were filled with many standees backed up into the hallway.

In closing, we are very thankful to the committee, authors, and attendees who made this year such a great success and we are looking forward to an even better conference next year.
