About Laser Spark Plug, Inc.
Laser Spark Plug, Inc. provides education and support for Alternative Fuel Combustion Science Education (AFCSE) platform capable of demonstrating optimized emissions with lower concentrations of poisonous nitrous-oxide
gasses, higher fuel efficiencies and lower
carbon dioxide emissions.
The AFCSE platform allows students to conduct cutting-edge alternative fuel combustion science and engineering experiments helping to optimize future generation alternative fuel engine performance and reducing emissions.
This work serves to address the general lack of opportunity for students in younger age groups to engage in “hands-on” advanced research with oversight and guidance provided by professional educators. This work educates and provides a rare experience for students that will serve them well in their future endeavors. The "hands-on" education results in a significant increase in the general understanding and body of science of alternative fuel combustion as it relates to improved efficiency and reduction of harmful emissions. This work looks to the future and enhances the air quality for all living creatures.
Students conducting this research will be improving themselves with a unique experience. They will develop new skills and understanding. Their individual capabilities in chemistry, engineering and environmental science will be greatly enhanced. Multi/mixed alternative fuel combustion is very new. Students will be involved in ground-braking research with a platform that has never been made available for this type of research.
So very little is known about mix-fuel/multi-fuel/alternative-fuel combustion. Conventional engines and injectors are typically designed and engineered for single fuel operation. In fact, most internal combustion engines are very sensitive to mixed-fuel contamination and will not function under such conditions.
Our efforts will provide new opportunities to improve American science education on a number of fronts. Experience tells us that early hands-on education can instill a lifelong love of science and of learning. We know, first-hand, that engaging experiences with scientists and engineers help to produce a population of students that excels in science and engineering.
The multi-mixed fuel test bed experiments prepare students to succeed in further studies. Students and professors will gain new insights, knowledge and understanding of alternative fuel combustion science, CO2 emissions and poisonous nitrous-oxide gasses. This work provides unique and sorely needed education that advances the state-of-the-art in the use of alternative fuel mixtures, maximizing fuel efficiency and minimizing harmful emissions.
