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.

Building on the success of the last two years, the Photonic Instrumentation Engineering Conference has continued to expand, seeing a 40% increase in the total number of submitted papers. This year, the conference had a truly international spirit, with presentations from the United States, Canada, Japan, India, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, Croatia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Norway.

This volume features several important contributions to the science of photonic instrumentation development and applications. A broad spectrum of different technologies and applications was presented, including various sensor technologies, laser and LED sources, and interferometric and spectroscopic instruments.

The presented sensor technologies perform numerous functions and work on different principles, including polarization sensing, positioning sensors, sensors based on surface plasmon resonance, interferometric and fiber-optic sensors, and sensors employed in the automotive industry.

A broad array of various photonic sources was presented this year. Some examples include femtosecond lasers, LEDs, lasers with complex field distributions, and highspeed spectrally swept sources.

Advancements made in the field of photonic instrumentation have been manifested this year by several practical applications of complex photonic devices that just a few years ago were considered exotic. This year, we witnessed the practical use of several spectroscopic instruments based on optical frequency combs, and interferometric devices using spectrally swept lasers and low coherence interferometers, just to name a few.

We are looking forward to your participation in the upcoming SPIE conferences, and hope to see the strong continuing interest in the field of photonics instrumentation development and applications from you, the reader.
