Nanoindenter / Nanoscratch System


  • Quantitatively characterize the mechanical properties of small volumes of material. Properties such as elastic modulus, hardness, creep, stress relaxation, and fracture toughness measured at the nanoscale and microscale. Nanoscratching uses lateral force to probe coatings and film adhesion
  • Applications: characterization of organic, inorganic, soft or hard materials and coatings such as thin and multilayer films, photoresists, paints and coatings, pharmaceuticals, metals and metal oxides, electronic/solar/semiconductor, polymers, glasses, ceramics, composites, biomaterials
