The SPIE Digital Library is also available to researchers and scientists on an individual subscription basis. Personal subscription options include downloads of up to 50 or 25 full-text papers from the Digital Library for a period of one year. Personal subscriptions represent a significant savings over single-paper purchases, and SPIE Members save even more.
Personal subscriptions may be purchased online. You will need to provide an e-mail address and, if you are an SPIE Member, your membership number. Once the form is successfully submitted and validated, within minutes you will receive an e-mail confirmation with instructions for setting up your account. At that point you may begin using all features of the SPIE Digital Library.
