Journals

SPIE Journals publish peer-reviewed articles on applied research in optics and photonics. Covering topics such as optical engineering, electronic imaging, biomedical optics, microlithography, remote sensing, and nanophotonics, SPIE Journals are available by subscription. SPIE also publishes open-access articles on important emerging technology areas in SPIE Letters and SPIE Reviews.

Proceedings

The latest innovations in research and technology are captured in Proceedings of SPIE. These original research papers presented at SPIE conferences are among the most cited references in patent literature and are available two to four weeks after each event.

Subscribe

The SPIE Digital Library is available by annual subscription. Personal subscriptions are a significant savings over single-paper purchases and SPIE Members save even more. Libraries can license the complete SPIE Digital Library and eBook collection.

Books

SPIE eBooks bring valuable SPIE Press titles - monographs and reference works, field guides, and tutorial texts - to researchers' desktops. At least 25 new titles and editions are added to the collection each year.

New Content

Papers are now being published for these conferences:
March 20-24, 2016
Las Vegas, NV, USA

Feb 27-Mar 3, 2016
San Diego, CA, USA

February 21-25, 2016

Featured Video

Watch the video "Sarah Bohndiek: The importance of imaging in understanding tumor metabolism" and read a recent article "Hyperspectral fluorescence imaging with multi wavelength LED excitation" co-authored by Sarah Bohndiek.

Announcements

Conference Presentations

Recordings of selected plenary, keynote, and hot topic conference presentations are now freely available for viewing.

SPIE Spotlights

SPIE Spotlights are new eBooks featuring 20-60 pages of concise, focused, digital-only material that either summarize a broad topic or highlight a specific niche. Written for a wide audience, these peer-reviewed eBooks get straight to the point, highlighting the most important aspects of the given subject. The first Spotlight eBooks are now available.

Most Cited Proceedings Articles

Proceedings of SPIE offer access to the latest innovations in research and technology and are among the most cited sources in the patent literature. Google Scholar metrics report that these articles are the 20 most cited Proceedings articles (2010-present).

Personal Accounts
The following personalization features require a personal account, even if your institution has a subscription. Click to sign in or create an account.
  • Email alerts: new journal articles, new proceedings volumes, new papers by Topic Collection
  • Remote access: Users at subscribing institutions can access and use the SPIE Digital Library remotely. This is activated by creating or signing into your personal account while on your institution’s network. Your personal account is then affiliated with your institution’s subscription. Sign in to the SPIE Digital Library using your personal account to gain remote access linked to your institution’s subscription. This user affiliation process must be repeated every three months to remain active.

Author Profiles

Many author links point to profiles with a full listing of the author’s SPIE publications and conference activities, as well as other professional information. Where a profile for an author does not exist, the link searches the SPIE Digital Library for other papers by that author. Authors can update or create their profiles on SPIE.org.

Open Access

In 2014 SPIE adopted a Gold Open Access author choice program applicable to new articles published in SPIE journals. Open access articles display an open access logo and are accessible to all readers. Read more information about this program.
