In-situ nanoindenter


The in-situ nanoindentation infrastructure, located in the Tampere Microscopy Center, comprises of a LEO 1450 SEM and an Alemnis in-situ nanoindenter. The LEO 1450 is a tungsten filament SEM with large chamber that is dedicated for in-situ micromechanical testing. The Alemnis in-situ nanoindenter can perform micromechanical tests over wide range of temperatures (-150 °C to +800 °C), strain rates (10-5 to 104 s-1 ) and frequencies (up to 10 kHz).
