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.

Fiber Optic Sensors and Applications XII is the latest installment in the SPIE Defense and Security Sensing conference on fiber optic sensors. Since shortly after the development of commercially viable optical fibers for communications applications, creative individuals have sought to use these fibers for sensing a wide variety of chemical, biological and physical quantities. Now after approximately 40 years of development, fiber optic sensors have found wide applicability in many application areas worldwide and numerous companies are now involved in the commercial development and deployment of these sensors. Active research still continues to improve the performance of these sensors and expand even further the conditions under which these sensors can be utilized as well as enhancing the time scale, sensitivity and long term performance.

These Proceedings includes a rich assortment of invited papers in areas including ultra fast measurements of explosive detonations, subsurface measurement, biological application, and single crystal sapphire harsh environment applications. Additional papers focused on specialty fibers for sensor applications including those based on single crystal sapphire; Bragg Grating sensors; high radiation level sensor applications; oil and gas applications; drug release and other biological monitoring; and composite cure monitoring applications. This proceedings delivers a broad array of fiber optic sensor technologies applied to a diverse set of application requirements. We hope that this volume proves useful to those intending to learn more about fiber optic sensors and the innovative work which continues to be conducted in this field
