Researchers found that when testing the same sample with different Berkovich indenters, inconsistency still arises even if the indenters are regularly calibrated.
In an article published in Applied Materials & Interfaces, researchers obtained the temperature distribution of a battery during the process of discharging at sub-zero temperatures while considering the separator's susceptibility to temperature variations.
An article published in Communications Materials presented the effect of humidity on hardness and elastic modulus (E) for two series of lead halide perovskite single crystals. The results indicated the influence of hydrogen (H)-bonding, bond length, and polarization of the ions in lead halide perovskite single crystals.
An accepted paper from the journal Physica Status Solidi A investigates the impact of chromium and molybdenum concentration in a cobalt chromium molybdenum alloy system.
New research discussed the changes in mechanical properties of A508-3 steel after irradiating it with iron (Fe+3) ions. Analysis was conducted through nanoindentation.
Analysis conducted on shape memory polymeric composites made from industrial substances previously utilized in aerospace enabled the identification of recovering processes at the microscopic level crucial for shape memory capabilities at the macroscopic level.
Instrumented indentation testing is a very important yet very sophisticated and expensive method to determine a material’s hardness and elastic properties. Hit 300 is a premium and highly affordable nanoindentation instrument built for every user and every type of environment.
A novel in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) investigation of prolonged slipping of diamond-like carbon (DLC) on diamond.
Computer simulations could help to create defect-free micro- and nanostructured patterns on surfaces through ultraviolet (UV) nanoimprinting.
An international team of researchers have used a unique tool inserted into an electron microscope to create a transistor that's 25,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair.
