nanoDMA III - Dynamic Nanoindentation

Bruker’s nanoDMA III is a powerful dynamic nanoindentation technique that provides continuous measurement of elastic-plastic and viscoelastic properties as a function of indentation depth, frequency, and time.

XPM — Accelerated Property Mapping

Bruker’s XPM sets a new industry standard for nanomechanical testing throughput paired with measurement resolution and accuracy. At up to 6 nanoindentation measurements/second, XPM delivers comprehensive nanomechanical property maps and property distribution statistics in a record amount of time.

SPM+ Imaging | Bruker

SPM+ Imaging

Bruker’s pioneering scanning nanoindenters utilize the same probe to both raster the sample surface for topography imaging and to conduct the nanomechanical test. In-situ SPM imaging maximizes test placement accuracy, provides immediate post-test observation of material deformation behavior, and accelerates testing throughput.


Precise lateral positioning and nanoscale load and depth control allow for the quantitative determination of localized mechanical properties such as elastic modulus, hardness, creep, stress relaxation, and fracture toughness for a wide variety of materials.

Ultra-sensitive force and displacement measurements in both the normal and lateral directions enable quantitative nanoscale tribological characterization on individual microstructures and interfaces, along with interfacial adhesion characterization of ultra-thin films.


Quantify wear behavior over the nanometer to micrometer length scales as a function of number of sliding cycles, sliding velocity, wear area, and applied force.
