Cardiovascular stents dramatically improve life expectancy, particularly considering people affected by cardiovascular disease are getting younger. Advances in materials and manufacturing engineering drives the development of stents and we have a strong track record in these fields.

Current research on stent design and development is more about making the stent strut even smaller and thinner to minimise disturbance to blood flow without compromising mechanical performance. Laser technology can meet the demands on micro-machining of small medical devices like stents. The advantage of using lasers against other manufacturing methods is the ability to produce with the highest speed, precision, and quality to meet stringent regulation requirements.

 In this project, we will build upon our understanding of the influence of laser process parameters on surface modification of stent materials. The investigation will focus on laser surface functionalisation and their effects to biological response and mechanical performance of stent materials. It will contribute to further development of laser micro-machining technology in manufacturing of delicate medical devices.
