Hands, T and Collings, N and Ma, T (1985) EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES IN COMBUSTION USE OF IN-CYLINDER IONISATION FOR THE INVESTIGATION AND CONTROL OF SPARK IGNITION ENGINES.

Ions generated during combustion have been used in three ways to give qualitative combustion information. Langmuir type probes have been inserted into the combustion chamber opposite the spark plug location. The centre electrode of the sparking plug itself has been used to produce an ionisation signal from the slightly ionised gases remaining after the flame front has departed. The spark discharge at ignition time has been used as an anemometer.
