News & Events

One of Hysitron's commitments and core competencies is to promote knowledge in the field of nanomechanics. We do this through exhibiting and participating in conferences, meetings, workshops and tradeshows throughout the year.  We are also committed to research and publish through internal research and key collaborations. Check back here often to find the latest in released papers and when our paths may cross at a conference.

Bruker today announced that it has acquired Hysitron, Inc., a technology leader in the development, manufacture, and sale of nanomechanical test instrumentation. Learn More

October 14th - 18th
Columbus, OH

Visit Bruker's booth at the MS&T 2018 Technical Meeting and Exhibition to discuss our comprehensive suite of nanomechanical and nanotribological test instruments that enable new frontiers in nanoscale materials characterization, materials development, and process monitoring.

Bruker Scientific Presentation

Symposium: Bulk Metallic Glass Matrix Composites - Challenges and Triumphs
Presentation Title: Quantifying the Mechanisms of Strain Delocalization in Metallic Glass Matrix Composites through Nanoindentation
Authors: Jonathan Gentile, Douglas Stauffer, Jason Trelewicz
Date & Time: Wednesday, October 17 | 3:00 PM - 3:20 PM

October 17th - 20th
Atlanta, GA

Visit Bruker in booth 320 at BMES 2018 to discuss our Hysitron BioSoft In-Situ Indenter, a mechanical test instrument specifically designed for multiscale quantitative mechanical testing of biological materials and soft matter such as hydrogels. The BioSoft interfaces with existing inverted optical microscopes, synchronizing powerful mechanical and optical testing techniques to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the mechanics of biomaterials.

In-Situ Nanomechanical Testing in the TEM | Bruker

October 18th, 2018
8AM PDT  |  11AM EDT  |  15:00 GMT

In-situ nanomechanical testing inside a transmission electron microscope (TEM) provides unique insight into material dynamics at the micrometer, nanometer, and atomic scales. Recent advances in nanomechanical holder design, microscopy techniques, and detector technology enable unprecedented observations of small-scale material behavior under applied stress. In this webinar, Dr. Sanjit Bhowmick, Bruker, will discuss the design and capabilities of Bruker’s Hysitron PI 95 TEM PicoIndenter, along with an introduction to the wide variety of small-scale mechanical testing techniques that are possible inside a TEM. Dr. Christian Kübel, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, will present a study on observing dynamic crystallographic changes and the Bauschinger effect within thin films under in-situ cyclic tensile strain.
