Nanoindentation, Scratch and nanoDMA Innovations for Atomic Force Microscopes

Webinar Overview

The Hysitron TriboScope seamlessly interfaces with Atomic Force Microscopes to deliver quantitative and repeatable mechanical and tribological characterization over the nanometer-to-micrometer length scales. By utilizing a rigid test probe, the TriboScope enables static and dynamic instrumented indentation.

This webinar discusses how nanomechanical properties are obtained via AFM-based nanoindentation comparing rigid probe vs cantilever based measurements. We explore true force and displacement feedback control modes and cover applications from soft polymers to hard ceramics. Additionally, we review nano-scratch, nano-wear and nanoDMA techniques and applications.
