Nanomechanics iNano

The iNano nanoindentation system is used for the rapid application of micro-mechanics, particularly by Bachelor’s and Master’s students. It has a simple design and user interface to make the running of experiments simple and allows for high throughput mechanical testing without intensive training. The dynamic measurements also present in this system make it ideal for nanoindentation and micro-compression.
