Abstract

In the past 10 years, Physical Sciences Inc. has been developing the Optical Waveguide (OW) System for solar energy utilization. In this system, solar radiation is collected by the concentrator which transfers the concentrated solar radiation to the OW transmission line. The OW transmission line transports the solar radiation to the location of solar energy utilization. Applications of this system include: material processing and plant lighting in space as well as power generation. In this paper we present a review of our work conducted during the last 10 years on the lunar material processing and space-based plant growing.
