SPIE Offers Free Papers, Webcasts to Members

SPIE.TV logo

Free papers from the SPIE Digital Library and free, online seminars on professional development topics are just a few of the ways SPIE helps members collect new ideas for taking optics and photonics technology to market.

SPIE offers access to one paper each month from the SPIE Digital Library and hosts an ongoing series of Webcasts on patent filing, presentation skills, and other career topics—just for members.

Access to the free papers is through the monthly SPIE Member E-Newsletter. Recent topics have included optical device engineering using nanotechnology, optical coherence tomography, and the National Ignition Facility.

The free Webcasts on SPIE.TV are helpful for students and young professionals who are building careers in optical engineering and useful for any photonics professional looking for career advice. The Webcasts are recorded live at various intervals and archived for member viewing at any time along with other SPIE Webcasts featuring interviews with experts, event coverage, and hot topics on solid-state lighting, lithography, and other technology subjects.

In the member-only Webcasts, patent attorney Marshall Honeyman advises members on "When Not to File a Patent;" Penn State's Michael Alley addresses scientific presentation skills and styles; and management consultant Carl M. Cohen offers tips on negotiating for equipment, resources, data interpretation, and other matters in the workplace.

Watch your e-mail inbox for notification about future Webcasts and the free papers in the SPIE Digital Library. To download a PDF, use your SPIE member login at http://spie.org/memberdownload. For more information about webcasts visit SPIE.TV.
