High peak power, passively Q-switched Cr:YAG/Nd:YAG micro-laser for ignition of engines

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


3mJ per pulse with 1.2ns pulse width, passively Q-switched Cr:YAG/Nd:YAG micro-laser was developed for ignition of engines. The enhanced combustion by using the micro-laser igniter was successfully demonstrated in comparison with a spark plug.
