Ceramics and Polymers

Nanoindentation provides localized hardness, modulus, fracture toughness, creep, stress relaxation, and viscoelastic properties of ceramics and polymers. Insight into the microscale spatial variation and mechanical properties enable a comprehensive understanding of microstructures and interfacial features and is therefore crucial for understanding failure. Because of its unique displacement control mode, the Alemnis Nanoindenter is ideally suited for micropillar fracture tests.
