The Harvey Mudd College Artemis clinic team will design, build, and test a mobile prototype of a microwave transmitter and receiver system for wireless solar-generated power transmission operating at 2.45 GHz.  The clinic team will construct a prototype capable of transmitting 100 watts of power at a distance of 100 meters.  The prototype will be modular in design and possess beam directional control capability.

The Physics Clinic program presents opportunities for students to work on practical projects relevant to industrial work. Students work on teams of 3–5 on a sponsored research or development project.
