High Temperature Module

High Temperature Module

Alemnis nanoindenter nanoindentation High Temperature Module

The High Temperature (HT) module allows for the precision testing with the sample and indentation tip heated up to 600°C. The module has been engineered to minimize the energy put into the system allowing for a fast thermal stabilization and unprecedented long term stability, thanks to the deep R&D expertise of the Alemnis scientists.


  • Up to 600°C

    Retrofittable module allows users to perform experiments up to 600°C in vacuum environment and up to 200° in air

  • control loops

    Temperature setting and regulation by two independent control loops for the tip and the sample (resolution 10mK)

  • high stability

    Stabilization time of 3 hours once the indenter is already installed in SEM/vacuum and heated from room temperature to 600°C.
