Thermoacoustic lasers convert heat from a high temperature heat source into acoustic power while rejecting waste heat to a low temperature sink. Recent research mainly focuses on using thermoacoustic engine arrays. Therefore, this study mainly focuses on coupling two thermoacoustic lasers. The coupling between the two lasers was started at 0 o crossing angle, where the openings of the lasers were parallel to each other and separated by a distance of 1 m. The next configuration was to focus the

As a result, we conclude from all the measurements made for both the 30 o and 90 o crossing experiments that synchronization between two lasers is possible when their open ends were placed close to each other.
