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.

Hysitron invites you to join us  in Booth 417 at the 2015 MRS Fall Meeting, Nov. 29th - Dec. 4th in Boston, MA. We will be sharing our latest developments in state-of-the-art nanomechanical testing solutions. Stop by our booth to discuss your materials characterization challenges and learn how Hysitron technology can help advance your research.

Hysitron will be showcasing our NEW BioIndenter™ for soft matter characterization along with the latest characterization techniques for our TI 950 TriboIndenter® and PI Series PicoIndenter® nanomechanical test instruments. Additionally, Hysitron Scientists have several talks at the  2015 MRS Fall Meeting that we encourage you to attend.
