Thin Film and Coating Testing

While bulk material properties can be determined using any number of established techniques, measuring material properties of thin films in-situ requires instrumented analysis.


Instruments with this advanced functionality can perform a wide assortment of required mechanical tests. Indentation, scratch, and reciprocating wear, all can be tested on the same platform, enabling very sensitive detailed imaging of the coatings through integrated atomic-force microscopy or optical microscopy.
