You need to give some context of where you saw it used.
Wikipedia lists 19 possible abbreviations that use SPE. At least three of them have something to do with physics:
Standard Percent Error
Solar Proton Event
Solid Phase Extraction
Good luck!Source(s): Check it out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spe

Solid-phase extraction (SPE) is an extraction method that uses a solid phase and a liquid phase to isolate one, or one type, of analyte from a solution. It is usually used to clean up a sample before using a chromatographic or other analytical method to quantitate the amount of analyte(s) in the sample.
The general procedure is to load a solution onto the SPE phase, wash away undesired components, and then wash off the desired analytes with another solvent into a collection tube.
