The commercialization of laser peening technology -- similar to working a metal’s surface with a ballpeen hammer -- has been one of the most successful transfers of Lawrence Livermore technology to industry. The laser peening technology, which was originally developed by Battelle in the 1970s and was first commercialized by LSP technologies in 1975, was upgraded by LLNL researchers working with Metal Improvement Co. Inc.
