Variable-pressure analytical scanning electron microscope (NSF MRI Award # 0619098). Large versatile chamber size. Thermo System Seven EDS system with silicon drift detector for elemental analysis. Remotely operable for K-12 students.
TriboIndenter (Nanomechanical Test Apparatus) Hysitron’s TriboIndenter is capable of performing automated nanomechanical tests on a wide range of materials including thin films and coatings. Elastic modulus, hardness, storage and loss modulus, delamination force, and coefficient of friction are some of the properties that can be determined using the TriboIndenter. In-situ Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) can also be performed with nanometer resolution.
