About the Journal :

Experimental and Theoretical NANOTECHNOLOGY (ETN) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed international journal published three issues a year. It includes specialized research papers, short communications, reviews and selected conference papers in special issues on the characterization, synthesis, processing, structure and properties of different principles and applications of NANOTECHNOLOGY; with focus on advantageous achievements and applications for the specialists in engineering, chemistry, physics and materials science.

ETN covers and publishes all aspects of fundamental and applied researches of experimental and theoretical nanoscale technology dealing with materials synthesis, processing, nanofabrication, nanoprobes, spectroscopy, properties, biological systems, nanostructures, nanoelectronics, nano-optics, nano-mechanics, nanodevices, nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine, nanotoxicology within the scope of the journal. ETN aims to acquire the recent and outstanding researches for the benefit of the human being.



SPACE-BASED NANO-MATERIAL ENHANCED SOLAR LASER SYSTEM SIMULATION FOR TRANSFERRING POWER ONTO THE EARTH

A simulation model of a space-based solar-pumped laser system sensitized by a luminescent nano-crystal to transfer the power onto the earth is carried out. The system consists of a solar pumped laser by a concentration system set on a satellite. The laser material is coupled with a luminescent nano-crystal that acts as a sensitizer. The resulted laser is directed onto the earth surface, where it can be used to generate power. The intensity and the divergence of the laser are calculated in order to obtain the optimal solar laser system as a payload on the satellite and the optimal terrestrial applications in Egypt.

Keywords: Solar Laser; Space Power; Solar Concentration; Satellite Payload; Nano-crystal, Sensitizer; Nano-material.
