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.
Scientists from Japan have devised a technique to develop two materials, where each material is formed of three graphene layers.
There are many possibilities for computing created by nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids. Researchers from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have worked with international collaborators to demonstrate reliable programming of a cobalt grid at room temperature.
The FT-MTA03 Micromechanical Testing and Assembly System is a highly versatile testing instrument for the accurate quantification of mechanical properties and dimensions/geometry in the micro- and nanoscale.
Nanomechanics Inc., a leading provider of innovative tools designed to enable users to understand, evaluate, and test the mechanical performance of materials at the micro- and nano-levels, is set to launch a new monthly webinar series on Wednesday, June 22.
ZEISS announces the new Ultra Load Stage for ZEISS Xradia Ultra 3D X-ray microscopes (XRM). Xradia Ultra Load Stage uniquely enables in situ nanomechanical testing -- compression, tension, indentation -- with non-destructive 3D tomographic imaging. For the first time, researchers will be able to image the evolution of structure in 3D under load down to 50 nm resolution. This new capability applies to a wide range of interests, covering both engineered and natural materials.
Insects are full of marvels – and this is certainly the case with a beetle from the Tenebrionind family, found in the extreme conditions of the Namib desert. Now, a team of scientists has demonstrated that such insects can collect dew on their backs – and not just fog as previously thought.
