Bruker’s Hysitron IntraSpect 90 is an in-situ indentation system specifically designed to correlate physiochemical changes during deformation. This system integrates with existing microscopes to enable simultaneous Raman characterization during small-scale indentation, tension, compression, or bend testing.
Thanks to a compact design, the Hysitron IntraSpect 90 easily mounts on the stage of an existing optical or Raman microscope. An extended sample mount provides clearance for the objective lens to easily access the deformation zone; and locking sample stages provide sample positioning while minimizing sample shift during testing.
Bruker’s unique transducer design provides up to 500 mN of force and 150 μm of displacement with unsurpassed noise floors for truly quantitative nanoscale-to-microscale mechanical testing under simultaneous Raman observation. The mechanical data can also be synchronized to the real-time optical imaging in the TriboScan analysis software to give a more complete understanding of the evolution of deformation.
