Laser Ignition of a High-pressure H2/He/O2 combustible mixture

  • Physics
  • 2017
Laser ignition is an efficient method to ignite high pressure combustible mixtures. It consists on focusing a nano second laser pulse into a small spot size creating an electrical spark and igniting

Laser Ignition of Methane-Air Mixtures at High Pressures and Diagnostics

Methane-air mixtures at high fill pressures up to 30 bar and high temperatures up to 200 °C were ignited in a high pressure chamber with automated fill control by a 5 ns pulsed Nd:YAG laser at 1064

Laser-induced spark ignition of CH4/air mixtures

Laser-induced spark ignition fundamental and applications

Laser-induced breakdown of gases

Powerful flashes of ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared laser light can cause breakdown and plasma formation in gases which are normally transparent at these wavelengths. The ionization processes
