Nizhny Novgorod, scientists have proposed to radically change the ignition system in cars. A group of teachers and students of the Polytechnic University of Nizhny Novgorod (!) Developed ignition system that uses a laser. The invention is able to make life easier for Russian and not just motorists, since such a system will lead the car without any problems, even in 50-degree weather.
It should be noted that a similar development of the competitors are in Japan and USA. It is no coincidence, since the laser ignition system greatly saves fuel and significantly reduces the level of harmful emissions into the atmosphere. Domestic development and require minimal financial cost that’s just made up of about 100 thousand rubles.
The first prototype was made out of nothing. The origin was the old engine since Soviet union. To him, scientists have connected a miniature laser system sosbstvennoy development, for which it was designed as a controller chip. Starting the engine was successful.
"As long as it’s only laboratory facility, but the future will be a compact candle" — promises Chair of power plants and heat engines Nizhny Novgorod Polytechnic University. Professor Vladimir Alexeyev Khim.
Russian design provides ignition of fuel using concentrated light pulses. Impulse is said by scientists, may be concentrated in the center of the chamber, which ensures complete combustion of the fuel. The process, of course, to control the engine and increases the efficiency in comparison to conventional spark plugs.
Despite the freshness of development, the first samples of ceramic laser spark plugs will be ready by the end of the year. The technology, developed by scientists Nizhegorodian undoubtedly be in demand in other areas, so the potential to recoup all costs. In addition, a similar tidbit certainly come running and investors ready to invest in a promising project.
In the near future tests will be carried out directly at the car rather than on the bench. It is reported that the ceramic laser spark plugs in the production will be slightly more expensive than traditional ones.
