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.

It is also the only instrument on the market offering true displacement controlled mode which provides unparalleled flexibility, accuracy and true in-situ nanomechanical testing of many materials and in different applications.

The standard nanoindenter is fully retrofittable with upgrade modules for dynamic mechanical testing under high strain rates and testing under extreme temperature conditions.
