Primary control mode
Alemnis Nano Indenter provide displacement control AND load control
About the product
The Alemnis nanoindenter is a compact and versatile instrument that can be integrated with numerous testing and imaging equipment and used in many different set-ups.
The Alemnis nanoindenter is compatible for in-situ use with Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM), and also for in-air use with for example Synchrotron beamlines or light microscopes, thus providing unparalleled flexibility, accuracy and true in-situ nanomechanical testing of many materials and in different applications.
Alemnis Nano Indenter is the most versatile platform in terms of enviromental use. Force range can be modified/changed by the user.
Each nanoindenter instrument is delivered with the AMICS software which controls instrument set-up, indentation experiments (quasi-static or dynamic) and acquisition and export of testing data. AMICS is open source so users can modify existing software, as well as adding on own software components.
