A platinum-chromium alloy makes coronary stents stronger, more flexible and resistant to corrosion. Now, Department of Energy National Lab scientists are winning an award for their work on the development, transfer and successful commercialization of the novel alloy.
The researchers from the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will receive a 2015 ASM Engineering Materials Achievement Award from the materials science and engineering society ASM International. NETL’s Paul Jablonski, Paul Turner, Edward Argetsinger and Jeffrey Hansen developed the alloy in collaboration with researchers at Boston Scientific Corporation.
