Abstract. This document shows the required format and appearance of a manuscript prepared for SPIE e-journals. The abstract should consist of a single paragraph containing no more than 200 words. It should be a summary of the paper and not an introduction. Because the abstract may be used in abstracting and indexing databases, it should be self-contained (i.e., no numerical references) and substantive in nature, presenting concisely the objectives, methodology used, results obtained, and their significance. A list of up to six keywords should immediately follow, with the keywords separated by commas and ending with a period.
Keywords: optics, photonics, light, lasers, templates, journals.
