That’s right. Thanks to new research from Japan’s National Institute of Natural Sciences (NINS) a new kind of laser device might soon become an industry standard in car manufacturing. This doesn’t mean cars will fire lasers, but they will run more efficiently. An energy efficient future is a fuel efficient one.
Thanks to laser spark plugs, this is now a possibility. Or at least a possibility that’s within grasp. Compared to traditional electric spark plugs, really small laser spark plugs ignite the oxygen gas combination powering the engine’s pistons more efficiently (this word again), producing less nitrous oxide emissions.
There’s some brain melting hard science behind this innovation that’s scheduled to be presented at an upcoming Conference on Lasers and Electro Optics in the USA.
