Contactless steam generation and superheating under one sun illumination | Nature Communications
Okay, it's cheating to say one sun when using a concentrator, but switch from direct contact heat transfer with capillary flow to IR emitter and vapor passthru is interesting

Two-Stage-to-Orbit Transporting System Combining Microwave Rocket and Microwave Thermal Rocket for Small Satellite Launch
Mirabo's air breathing laser lightcraft used lasers to ignite air plasma, this is proposing something similar using microwaves for a rocket booster stage, then beamed microwave thermal for the second stage.

Notable here is the determination that you can cheat the trajectory to favor a higher altitude initial vertical boost, take the gravity loss hit during a cold coast to the second beam director LoS, then have a longer second stage beamed thermal burn. Allegedly 3x payload compared to a UAV air drop launch to a single beam director site?

But how does a common microwave beam work here for first and second stages? Is the first beaming site only a pulsed microwave system? Does microwave PDE even work with continuous wave microwaves?

Polymath: Beamed propulsion doable now, and with it space solar power.
microLED's have parallel but non-coherent output, which may be servicable for use as a light beam source for beamed propulsion, aka laser launch
