Laser ignition quantitatively improves performance of gasoline engines

Only by quantitatively improving performance (and cost) compared to electric spark plugs (ESPs) will laser ignition (LI) of gasoline engines be considered for adoption by major automobile manufacturers. Researchers from the National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics and Renault Technologie Roumanie (both in Ilfov, Romania), and from University Politehnica of Bucharest (Bucharest, Romania) have achieved such advances in their design and quantifiable demonstration of an LI system using fiber-coupled, compact neodymium- and chromium-yttrium-aluminum- garnet (Nd:YAG/Cr4+:YAG) laser spark plugs.

Prof. Ion N. Mihailescu, FELLOW OF THE OPTICAL SOCIETY

Prof. Ion N. Mihailescu, Senior Scientific Researcher, 1st degree, Laser-Surface-Plasma Interactions Laboratory, Lasers Department from National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics, received one of the most important awards in Optics at international level, he was elected "FELLOW OF THE OPTICAL SOCIETY (OSA) for outstanding contributions to the field of Optics of high pulsed energy laser radiation, with groundbreaking applications in nano-biomedicine, chemistry, and metalurgy".

Tools made of light

The inventions being honoured this year have revolutionised laser physics. Extremely small objects and incredibly rapid processes are now being seen in a new light. Advanced precision instruments are opening up unexplored areas of research and a multitude of industrial and medical applications.

Arthur Ashkin invented optical tweezers that grab particles, atoms, viruses and other living cells with their laser beam fingers.
