    The realization of the solar power satellite (SPS) concept holds great promise for solving energy crises and improving the lot of mankind. However, it is increasingly clear that the development of SPS systems with microwave power transmission (MPT), along with the resolution of environmental issues, will be a global endeavor. It is also clear that the increasingly global economy means that sources... View full abstract»

    This review looks at the history and present state of microwaves in the Ukraine, showing that this area is well developed and has great potential. The Ukrainian microwave community is comparable to that in such nations as France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom, although today it is scarcely funded. The review also covers microwave research, industry, and education in the Ukraine. View full abstract»

    The author summarizes the derivations and techniques applicable to a mathematical analysis model of the degradation in phase noise-to-carrier ratio of various components and cascade of components. The components that are analyzed are: passive elements with loss (filters, attenuators, etc.), linear amplifiers, and frequency translation devices, such as multipliers and mixers. This analysis techniqu... View full abstract»

    Interference assessment between the solar power satellite (SPS) system and fixed satellite service (FSS), terrestrial fixed service (FS), wireless LAN, and radio astronomy (RA) has been reviewed in this paper. We have found that interference constraints in the 2.45- and 12.25-GHz bands are relatively severe. Some strategies for the relaxation of interference have been discussed, and co-existence b...

    Future large-scale space solar power (SSP) will form a very complex integrated system of systems requiring numerous significant advances in current technology and capabilities. Ongoing technology developments have narrowed many of the gaps, but major technical, regulatory, and conceptual hurdles remain. Continuing systems concept studies and analyses will be critical to success, as will following ... View full abstract»

    Radio waves can benefit the welfare of humanity through other purposes than communications. Microwave power transmission (MPT) is one of the new technological frontiers. Solar power satellites (SPS) will provide a clean and limitless energy resource from space through this technique. This article answers the fundamental question of why we need to develop SPS from the viewpoint of critical global i... View full abstract»

    A decade ago, a major research initiative, with orchestrated monetary and programmatic support from both industry and the government, was launched to investigate the biological effects and health implications of radio frequency (RF) radiation emitted from cellular mobile telephones. The subject remains a focus of public concern and shows no sign of relenting. There is a lack of scientific consensu... View full abstract»

    Aimed at students in courses on vector calculus, electromagnetism, and quantum mechanics, this article attempts to express vector concepts in physical terms, make them intuitively understandable, simplify their use, develop some understanding and at the same time hold the students' attention. A discussion of Gauss' law is also presented. View full abstract»
