Kick-off for the BMWi project “LaGaMo” - Laser Ignition for effective and low-emission Combustion in Gas Engines
Since September 1st, 2020, the LTTT has been working as part of the “LaGaMo” project on the application-oriented implementation of laser ignition for the use in large gas engines for cogeneration units. The project is funded for 3 years by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) within the 7th Energy Research Programme of the Federal Government.
In addition to the LTTT, the project consortium includes three other partners:
the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Mechanics (F-IOF) in Jena, the National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics (INFLPR) in Măgurele, Romania, and 2G Energietechnik GmbH in Heek.
Research on laser ignition has a long tradition at the LTTT. After extensive basic research in recent years has explored the potential of laser ignition, the aim of the current project is to develop a new type of flexible laser ignition system until it is ready for series production for use in cogeneration units.
