Magic Laser And Nanoparticle Engines To Solve Emissions Crisis?
The Turbonator. Magic spark plugs. Fuel additives. Lasers. Wait, lasers? Believe it or not, in addition to the gimmicky infomercial gadgets claiming to turn a wheezing four-pot into a fire-breathing V-8--while delivering 100 mpg--lasers and nanoparticles are now being touted by researches at the University of Florida as a possible next-gen solution to fuel economy and emissions. The best part? We don't have to give up our gasoline.
So, how, exactly, does one take low-energy lasers, nanoparticles and fuel and come up with a lean, green machine? The answer is suprisingly simple, if you don't dig too deep.
