Nanoindenter/Nanomechanical Testing

Nanomechanical Testing

SSW has a Hysitron TI-950 TriboIndenter. The instrument operates by indenting a diamond tip into and withdrawing it from the sample, from which a load-displacement curve is obtained. The unloading portion of the curve can be used to estimate the mechanical properties (reduced modulus and hardness) for materials such as metals, oxides and plastics.
