SPIE Digital Library
The SPIE Digital Library (spiedl.org
) is the place you can download and read SPIE proceedings papers from 1990 to the present, as well as all issues of the Societys six journals, also going back as far as 1990. Currently there are more than 230,000 proceedings and journal papers available either to purchase individually or with a subscription.
Here are a selection of the most frequently downloaded papers on the Digital Library in the most recent month data is available.
"Terahertz interferometric imaging of a concealed object,"
Alexander M. Sinyukov, Aparajita Bandyopadhyay, Amartya Sengupta, Robert B. Barat, Dale E. Gary, Zoi-Heleni Michalopoulou, David Zimdars, and John F. Federici, Proc. of SPIE Vol. 6373, 63730K (2006).
Another resource for technical content is the SPIE Newsroom
. The Newsroom consists of 13 technical communities (TCs), covering the latest news and breakthroughs in the many areas of optics and photonics.
The TCs are: Astronomy, Biomedical Optics & Medical Imaging, Optoelectronics & Communications, Defense & Security, Electronic Imaging & Signal Processing, Illumination & Displays, Sensing & Measurement, Lasers & Sources, Micro/Nano Lithography, Nanotechnology, Optical Design & Engineering, Remote Sensing, and Solar & Alternative Energy.
For the month of January, here are 10 of the most viewed articles on the site.
