On July 1, 1955 SPIE was established as the Society of Photographic Instrumentation Engineers in California to have some expertise in the utilization of photographic instrumentation. In 1964 the society changed its name to the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers. In 1977 SPIE moved its base camp to Bellingham, Washington, and in 1981, to reflect a changing membership, the Society started working together as (DBA) SPIE—The International Society for Optical Engineering. In 2007, the society finished its DBA, and is alluded to just as "SPIE".
SPIE is the worldwide society for optics and photonics established to propel an interdisciplinary way to deal with the science and application of light. The Society approach is creating developments via interdisciplinary data trade, proceeding with training, productions, patent point of reference, and vocation and expert development. Every year SPIE perceives achievements and commendable administration in the optics, photonics, optoelectronics, and imaging groups it serves. Colleagues are individuals from refinement who have made significant specialized and investigative commitments in optics, photonics, optoelectronics, and imaging.
The aim of SPIE is to serve scientists and engineers in industry, the academic world, and government working in a wide assortment of fields that use some aspect of optics and photonics, and the application of light.
Members of the society apply new strategies design and development of technologies such as semiconductor manufacturing, robotics, next-generation displays, medical imaging, biometric security, battlefield technologies, entertainment, communications, and much more.
SPIE has members from around the world, with headquarters in North America and Europe, including North and South America, Africa, Europe and Asia,
SPIE is most known for Photonics West, held in San Francisco. SPIE organizes conferences, trade exhibitions, and education programs for scientist, researcher and developers in the light-based fields of physics, which incorporates optics, photonics, and imaging engineering. SPIE Conferences and Exhibitions act as a connecting link for optical science and the optics industry. The society is affiliated with over 140 meetings and events each year.
In 2015, the society support nearly $5.2 million outreach programs and optics education around the world. The society publishes peer-reviewed conference proceedings, scientific journals, tutorial texts, monographs, field guides, and reference volumes in print and online.Read More»
