Hybrid Imaging Techniques

Enabling a New Understanding of Material Properties at the Nanoscale

The combination of specialized imaging techniques with nanomechanical and nanotribological testing enables the characterization and understanding of materials in ways previously unimaginable. Taking advantage of multiple fully-integrated materials characterization technologies, Hysitron’s hybrid imaging capabilities provide enhanced confidence in the measured results and a deeper insight into material properties and deformation behavior. Hybrid imaging leverages the core strengths of the imaging technique and seamlessly integrates it with nanomechanical testing. This in-situ combination greatly increases data reliability and new understanding of properties and material deformation behavior at the nanoscale.

Hysitron is the pioneer and world leader in hybrid imaging-nanomechanical testing techniques. From our in-situ SPM imaging capabilities for nanometer-precision test placement accuracy, an integrated fluorescence microscope for fluorochrome guided test positioning, and Raman spectroscopy for combined chemical composition and structure characterization, to high-resolution imaging inside your SEM and TEM, Hysitron’s hybrid imaging techniques will increase reliability and accelerate your understanding of material behavior at the nanoscale.
