Proximal Nanoprobe

Hysitron Triboindenter

Location:  87 Shepherd Labs

Contact:  John Nelson

The Triboindenter performs indentation tests by driving a diamond indenter into the specimen surface and dynamically collecting the applied force and displacement data.  Material properties are derived from the load and depth data.  Specimens are typically relatively smooth and flat.
