Imagine that for the annual routine check-up your dentist had to take your teeth out in order to examine them thoroughly for caries under a microscope. Wouldn't it be impratical?
Up to now, the hardness and elasticity tests on extremely thin material layers have operated on a similar principle: The components supporting them have to, as a rule, be removed and tested on their characteristics using a table-sized device. The Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) has now developed a small, handy MEMS-supported nanoindentation device which can carry out measurements directly on the component without having to remove it beforehand. This novelty can be viewed at the CONTROL in Stuttgart from 22 to 25 April in hall 1, stand 1304.PTB Contact
