Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B...0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

The Emerging Liquid Crystal Technologies (ELCT) conference at Photonics West was started in 2005. It evolved from the conference on Liquid Crystal Materials, Devices and Applications conference of SPIE. The ELCT conference is now firmly established as one of the key conference focusing on liquid crystal materials, devices, and applications.

The 2016 conference on Emerging Liquid Crystal Technologies XI (ELCT-XI) provided a forum for academic and industrial scientists and engineers to present high-impact scientific and technological research on recent advances in materials, devices, and applications. Numerous emerging topics on liquid crystal science and technology have taken advantage of unique anisotropic properties of liquid crystal materials to significantly improve the performance of existing devices or create new devices.

The topics of ELCT-XI included: Optical Control and Modulations, Blue Phase and Applications, Optical Manipulation and Imaging, Lenses and Spatial Light Modulators, Photo-Alignment and Photo-active Materials, Electro-Optical Processes, and Novel Photonic Materials. The conference featured keynote, invited, topical oral, and poster papers.

We hope you had stimulating and enjoyable experiences at Emerging Liquid Crystal Technologies XI at Photonics West 2016 in San Francisco, California!
