SPIE Digital Library

SPIE Digital Library is the world's largest collection of optics and photonics applied research.  The University of Sheffield has access to:

  • Peer-reviewed journals such as SPIE's flagship monthly journal, Optical Engineering (OE), which reports on research and development in all areas of optics, photonics, and imaging science and engineering.
  • Ebook titles from SPIE Press, the largest independent publisher of optics and photonics books.  We have access to titles published between 1989 and 2018.
  • Conference proceedings, including recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences along with presentation slides, and full-text papers.


Access is available directly from this page by connecting to the SPIE Digital Library website - you'll be prompted to log in to MUSE as necessary.  You can also search by title for individual journals, ebooks, and conference proceedings from StarPlus.
