As materials technology advances, greater performance is often achieved by controlling the structure of a material at smaller and smaller scales. Development of materials with smaller constituents, thinner films or coatings, and increasing microstructural complexity require characterization techniques to advance accordingly.

This webinar is part of a series that will explore how nanoindentation has emerged as a flexible and practical method for probing the mechanical properties of small volumes of material. In this first webinar, we will explore some of the latest advancements in dynamic mechanical testing that are available today. These techniques can be applied to measuring a wide variety of materials used in aerospace, semiconductor, automotive, biological, and energy related industries.

You’ll learn about:

  • Overview of nanomechanical characterization and dynamic testing at the nanoscale
  • Current challenges facing traditional dynamic testing
  • Quantitative mechanical property measurements at the nano to micro scale
  • Dramatic improvements upon the capabilities of traditional instrumented indentation, with Hysitron’s nanoDMA® III dynamic testing package
  • Applications and results using nanoDMA III’s advanced dynamic testing
  • A sneak preview of our next webinar covering nanoscale dynamic testing at high temperatures

Who should attend?
Researchers involved with a broad range of materials that exhibit time and/or temperature dependent mechanical properties.
