Instrumentation

Hysitron TI 950 Nanoindenter
With Vacuum Stage

  Internal: $20.43 / hr
External: $275.00 / hr
Subject to annual revision

   Capabilities include

  • 2D transducer for Scratch testing and Coefficient of Friction determination                       
  • Dynamic testing: ideal for polymeric and ultra-thin film coatings
  • Contact mode imaging: ideal for precise indent placement and determination of indentation pile-up 
  • High temperature capabilities up to 400°C 
  • Electrical contact resistance measurements for conductive materials
  • New vacuum stage installed for large samples, eliminating the need of an acetone soak for mounting removal
