About Optipedia

Welcome to the newest resource for the optics and photonics community! Optipedia takes pages directly from popular SPIE Press books and links them together to create your open-access resource for trusted optics and photonics information. 

Search for topics using
the above search box (use SEARCH: Optipedia Content), browse with the Optipedia index, or jump from topic to topic using the embedded keyword links within the index. 

With Optipedia, you get:

  • Authoritative technical information from the experts. 
  • Pages linked via keywords.
  • A preview of popular and forthcoming SPIE Press books.
  • New pages posted regularly.
  • More functionality coming soon, including user interactivity!

Optipedia is a new and rapidly evolving project. While the contents are limited now, Optipedia will continue to be filled with great content from the many existing and forthcoming SPIE Press books.
