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.

In this year of 2016 the Optical Systems Alignment, Tolerancing, and Verification X conference celebrated its tenth anniversary! We all are delighted about the continued success of the conference. We thank the authors, audience, SPIE staff, and the conference committee for contributing to make the conference so successful and of interest to the optical engineering community.

The conference has been always held on Sunday and arranged in four oral presentation sessions, with poster sessions on Monday and Wednesday. Papers contributed to Space Systems and JWST Alignment and Integration I; Alignment Methods and Algorithms; Space Systems and JWST Alignment and Integration II; and Aspheres, Tolerancing, and Verification.

The talks about the JWST provided the audience with an update of the telescope and integration. These papers were insightful about the methodologies being used for the alignment and verification. In particular, instrument and pupil alignment issues were brought up as an important subject. We are especially grateful to Raymond G. Ohl for his role on attracting so many fine presentations about the JWST.

Three papers we like to highlight are “A toolbox of metrology-based techniques for optical system alignment,” by Philip Coulter, et. al.; “Precision spacers as compensators,” by Michael R. Kehoe, et. al.; and “The structure function as a metric for roughness and figure,” by Robert Parks et. al.

Reflecting on the last 10 years we realize that the optical engineering community has indeed emphasized the topics championed by the conference: Alignment, Tolerancing, and Verification. Today it is unthinkable to embark into a major project without addressing each of these topics, and we are starting to see many specialists in these fields. We believe that the conference has contributed to the awareness and development of such fields.

We hope that the readers will enjoy and benefit from the collection of papers presented in this tenth volume. We look forward to another ten successful years to come, starting with our conference in 2017 at SPIE Optics and Photonics in San Diego.
