Curt Lavender, Mark Smith & Elizabeth Stephens - Researchers earn Federal Laboratory Consortium Award

February 2010
Congratulations to EED's Curt Lavender, Mark Smith, and Elizabeth Stephens on their 2010 FLC Award for Excellence in Technology Transfer. Working with LSP Technologies, Inc., Sandvik Special Metals, LLC, and Eric Lund of PNNL’s Office of Technology Deployment and Outreach, the three researchers helped advanced a metal treatment process, Laser Shock Peening (LSP). The project demonstrated that LSP markedly improved the performance of pilger dies and that the process may be beneficial for automakers and other industries.
