Nanoindentation of Metallic Samples – Physics World


Tue, Apr 7, 2020 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM BST

Nanoindentation of metallic samples is closely related to hardness testing methods such as Vickers. The Vickers hardness test requires an imaging method to determine the size of the indentation cup. This implies that the Vickers hardness test is limited to larger indentation cups. Nanoindenation not only eliminates this shortfall by determining the size of the indentation cup from measurements of load and displacement, it also is much easier to automate the nanoindentation testing and the analysis of mechanical data.

This session contains an introduction into hardness testing, the indentation analysis following Oliver&Pharr (1992) and demonstrates the benefits of hardness testing at nanoscale for metallic samples.
