NanoTest Vantage:

Nanoindentation


The definition of nanoindentation is defined as an indentation performed on the nanometer length scale. More importantly, the depths to which the indenter is displaced into the surface is again within the nanometer scale. In order to accomplish this, your system must be capable of measuring the indentation depths with high accuracy. Therefore, nanoindentation can also be described as depth sensing indentation on the nanometer scale.

Specifications:

  • 0.05 mN – 20 N load range
  • 40 µm of depth capability
  • Lowest thermal drift ( Accurate stage control (Res: 100 nm)
  • Available fine stage control (Res: 10 nm)
