Lasers Have Potential To Increase Efficiency Of Conventional Engines

Eco Friendly Daily

A team of scientists from Romania and Japan have devised lasers made from compressed ceramic powders. Scientists have been working to make conventional combustion engines more efficient for years, a feat that would reduce emissions and increase fuel efficiency. One of the methods suggested for increasing the efficiency of combustion engines is the use of lasers instead of spark plugs to ignite fuel. This has been seen as a possibility, although not a major one due to the size of lasers.
