Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of 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 and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • 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.


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.

Since the discovery of X-rays and for most of their 110 year history, there has been an increasing demand for more powerful X-ray sources. Substantial investment and research has led the development of worldwide synchrotron facilities to satisfy research needs. However, industrial and medical applications typically cannot rely on remote sources. Despite the relative lack of investment, there has been steady progress in the development of a variety of laboratory-based sources and optics for medical, industrial, and related applications.

The presentations at this conference provided a broad review of the recent advances in source and optics developments, as well as a number of applications. We hope that the conference fosters closer collaboration between the developers and users of laboratory-based X-ray systems.

The first part of the conference concentrated on source development, including laser-based, triboelectric, inverse Compton, field emission, nanometer focus, liquid jet sources, and also the thermal management of anodes. This was followed by a discussion of optics, including electroform mirrors, channel cut monochromators and multilayer optics and applications including CT microscopy, and phase, monochromatic and stroboscopic imaging.
