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 year the highlights of the conference included invited talks on the methods for coherent combination of laser diodes and the future of laser diode technology. The paper on coherent beam combination reviewed the progress on the numerous beam combination methods that have been tested, which include: spectral beam combining, dense wavelength beam combining, and coherent combination using both passive and active coherent combination techniques. However, after over 20 years of research, there are no coherent combined products in the marketplace today, despite demonstrating diffraction limited beam quality at power levels as high as 35 Watts. Nevertheless, laser diode systems using incoherent beam combination techniques have flourished in the industrial marketplace, with power output climbing yearly to a record level of 40 kW this year. The paper discussing this breakthrough in direct diode laser system design revealed a roadmap for scaling the power level to even higher levels, including up to 100 kW of fiber coupled output. The talk on the future of laser diode technology highlighted this power trend and discussed a number of technologies which are rapidly advancing, including the recent record laser diode bar levels of 300 Watt CW. The rapid advancement in laser diode technology includes: assembly methods, heatsink design, laser diode bar power levels, and laser diode bar reliability. The future looks bright, meaning we can expect higher brightness and higher power laser diode systems in the future.
