The Hysitron TI 950 TriboIndenter nanoindenter from Bruker is an automated, high throughput instrument designed to support several nanomechanical and nanotribological characterization methods that they have created. This robust equipment integrates the performech® I Advanced Control Module, which offers a massive improvement over earlier systems in the precision of feedback-regulated nanomechanical testing.
This module also enables twin head testing for nano/micro scale connectivity and delivers unparalleled noise floor performance. With Bruker offering many nanomechanical testing methods, as well as the innumerable new testing techniques presently in development, the Hysitron TI 950 TriboIndenter is an extremely versatile and effective nanomechanical characterization tool for the widest range of applications.
Superior Control and Sensitivity
By integrating Bruker’s performance-leading feedback control algorithms with higher measurement sensitivity, all Hysitron nanomechanical testing methods offer remarkably precise control. The exclusive digital signal processor (DSP) and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) embedded control system handle the feedback control functionalities on the Hysitron TI 950 so as to accurately obey the inputted request of the user.
Capacitive Transducer Technology
The proprietary capacitive transducer technology from Bruker offers unmatched sensitivity of measurement (<30 nN, <0.2 nm), accuracy, and reliability across the nanoindentation process. As electrostatic actuation consumes less current, excellent drift features can be used that result in higher accuracy, quicker data acquisition, and improved repeatability.
High-Resolution Optics with In-Situ SPM Imaging
The Hysitron TI 950 TriboIndenter is also fitted with top-down optics and a color CCD camera for high magnification and visual investigation of sample surfaces, and the selection of testing locations. If better refinement of the probe placement is needed, in-situ SPM imaging can be used to modify the probe position to within ±10 nm. The two modes of imaging offered by the Hysitron TI 950 enable precise positioning of the probe to match any of the numerous applications where it can perform.
