Feasibility Study of FGM Technology in Space Solar Power Systems (SSPS)

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper, we introduce research and development in SSPS (aimed at global energy supply) in Japan. To build SSPS, we must develop ultra lightweight materials and high efficiency energy conversion materials. Feasibility of adapting FGM concept for those new demands and advanced research theme for future FGM research are also introduced in this paper.
