Quantitative Depth-Sensing Microindentation
The MultiRange NanoProbe extends the testing range of Hysitron’s nanoindentation systems by increasing the load and displacement range for depth-sensing indentation measurements into the microscale. Hysitron’s MultiRange NanoProbe utilizes piezo resistive technology to allow high load/large displacement instrumented indentation characterization and provides an invaluable tool for the study of micromechanical properties, fracture toughness, and interfacial adhesion.
Hysitron's MultiRange NanoProbe Features
- Quantitative depth sensing indentation for modulus, hardness, and fracture toughness characterization over the nanometer and micrometer length scales
- Operates under closed-loop load or displacement control modes
- Unique piezo loading/capacitive sensing system offers superior stability and low thermal drift
- Tunable transducer design provides flexibility for custom engineered maximum normal load
