Center for Laser Shock Processing for Advanced Materials and Devices

The “Ohio Center for Laser Shock Processing for Advanced Materials and Devices” has been established at University of Cincinnati (UC), Cincinnati, Ohio; in collaboration with industry, universities and with $3 million award from the state of Ohio, Department of Development Third Frontier Program. 

 The Center’s far-reaching mission is to:

  1. Develop a balanced research and education infrastructure to serve both academia and industry
  2. Advance research in critical areas and help develop and commercialize new products for the orthopedic/spinal implant industry in the short term
  3. Foster proliferation of this technology to many products through R&D, entrepreneurial and commercialization activities

    The Ohio Center for Laser Shock Processing for Advanced Materials and Devices  has researchers with  expertise in a wide variety of fields including surface enhancment, physcial metallurgy, mechanical behavior of materials, corrosion and materials characterization.The center is open for industry consortium for process and product development and prototyping activities.
