Engine testing was performed on a Ricardo Proteus single cylinder research engine. The goal of the engine testing was to show that the test laser performs identically to the commercially available flashlamp pumped actively Q-switched laser used in previous laser ignition testing. The engine testing consisted of a comparison of the in-cylinder, and emissions behavior of the engine using each of the lasers as an ignition system. All engine parameters were kept as constant as possilbe while the equivalence ratio (fueling), and hence the engine load, was varied between 0.8, 0.9, and 1.0.... cyl 12 External Communications Interface 1 ) Compatible with Engine Diagnostic Tools 2| SAE J1939 Communications 3i Ability to set timing via the data link 13 Predictive Maintenance \) Ignition system fault code generation 2) Prognosticsanbsp;...
