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 book contains the proceedings of the SPIE Conference on Photon Counting Applications. The conference was held 13–15 April, in Prague, Czech Republic as part of the 2015 SPIE Conference on Optics and Optoelectronics. The meeting was organized into technical sessions on superconducting photon counting, solid state photon counting, x-ray photon detection, and applications. A poster session was also provided.

The purpose of the conference was to provide a forum for scientists and engineers from the detector development and user communities to present and evaluate the most recent results on photon-counting detectors and to discuss the requirements for a variety of detection and imaging applications. A total of 26 presentations, including 6 posters, were provided at the conference. This book provides detailed documentation describing a portion of the presentations. The editors hope that it will serve as an important record of the meeting, providing an update on the status of photon-counting detectors and applications, and serving as a useful resource for those working in the field.

The Conference Chairs would like to thank the Session Chairs and members of the Conference Program Committee, who offered their time to enlist the involvement of researchers working in the field.
