RIT researcher develops new solar sailing technology for NASA - RIT News
Uh, based on the vectors, this is only going to work really well for an SSO orbit riding the terminator line since you need the solar angle to be normal to the plane of the sail and keep the sail edge-on to the orbital vector...

OSA | Monolithic ultra-high-Q lithium niobate microring resonator
so lithium niobate makes for great resonators for fiber optic networks, but is chemically inert so you can't etch it easily. Now, it looks like they've achieved usable dry plasma etching to make waveguides/resonators.

Using the edge of the atmosphere as a surface interface, which can be manipulated with pulse lasers to be physically shaped into lens shapes to fiddle with optics. So can be used as a focuser for lasers and ground observation telescopes, and as a diffuser for self protection/obfuscation of space assets.
