As the world leader in nanomechanical testing systems, Bruker makes it easy for you to conduct in-situ mechanical experiments in your microscope with the Hysitron PI Series PicoIndenters. Our unique transducer design delivers unmatched stability throughout your experiments, resulting in precise data even at the nanoscale. Video capture from the microscope enables real-time monitoring and direct correlation of mechanical data to microscope imaging. With solutions designed to fit many of the microscope brands in use, you are sure to find one that is ideally suited to your research.
Precise lateral positioning and nanoscale load and depth control allow for the quantitative determination of fundamental mechanical properties such as hardness and elastic modulus for a wide variety of materials.
Direct-pull and Push-to-Pull (PTP) testing of dog-bone specimens, thin films, or nanowires allows for the in-situ measurement of stress-strain behavior in low dimensional materials not easily tested by traditional means.
Accurate loading alignment and specimen size measurement using SEM imaging enables straightforward bending stiffness and fracture toughness measurements for single-phase, composite, or layered materials.
Pillars, particles, and other small scale structures can be compressed to measure stress-strain behavior and yield properties while observing deformation mechanisms in real time. Proper tip alignment is verified using SEM imaging.
Our webinars cover best practices, introduce new products, provide quick solutions to tricky questions, and offer ideas for new applications, modes, or techniques.
Bruker partners with our customers to solve real-world application issues. We develop next-generation technologies and help customers select the right system and accessories. This partnership continues through training and extended service, long after the tools are sold.
Our highly trained team of support engineers, application scientists and subject-matter experts are wholly dedicated to maximizing your productivity with system service and upgrades, as well as application support and training.
