Hysitron’s TI 700 Ubi 1 Nanoscratcher

ScanningWear™ is a characterization technique that enables investigation into the wear resistance of coatings and films at the nanoscale. Wear tests are performed by raster scanning the probe across the sample with a user-defined contact force. By applying a known force and specifying the number of passes over which this force is applied to the sample surface, carefully-defined nanoscale wear tests can be designed. After ScanningWear tests have been performed, quantitative measurements of wear depths and volumes can be obtained using Hysitron’s in-situ SPM imaging technique.

 

Available Testing Modes:

1. nanoScratch – Quantify scratch resistance, critical delamination forces, friction coefficients and more with simultaneous normal and lateral force and displacement monitoring

2. Quasistatic nanoindentation – Measure Young’s modulus, hardness, fracture toughness and other mechanical properties via indentation

3. ScanningWear – Customize nanoscale wear tests to study wear resistance, wear rates, etc. by quantifying wear volumes and characterizing wear areas using in-situ imaging
