EFFECTS OF MICROWAVES ON THE PERFORMANCE OF INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES. FINAL TECHNICAL REPORT, MARCH 1, 1978-MAY 31, 1979

The project studied the interaction of microwave energy with both an ignition plasma as well as with a hydrocarbon-air flame plasma in order to ultimately assist lean mixture burn and increase flame speed of a hydrocarbon-air fuel mixture in the internal combustion engine. In achieving these goals, vehicular exhaust pollutants will be reduced and engine efficiency will be increased. (ERA citation 05:013831)
