BPN364: MEMS Power: Flame Ionization


Our long term goal is to develop and implement a micro flame ionization sensor that can be fabricated using existing techniques. These sensors can be fitted into any combustion engines to monitor combustion events and processes. An array of miniaturized sensors may also be used to detect the flame speed and propagation direction by time-of-flight analysis. These sensors, when used in combination to advanced engine tuning techniques, may increase combustion efficiency, or be used to reduce emissions.
