Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


A 0.3PW/sr-cm2, high brightness passively Q-switched Cr:YAG/Nd:YAG micro-laser was tested for ignition of a real automobile engine. Stable engine operation was demonstrated with an ignition optical energy of 2.3mJ, lowest ever reported.
