AgilentTM Nano IndenterTM G200
AgilentTM Nano IndenterTM G200 (over $200,000) with continuous stiffness measurement (CSM) module, dynamic contact module II (DCM II), temperature-control module, and NanoVisionTM scanning probe microscope module. Agilent Technologies is the world top manufacture of nanomechanical testing instruments, and Nano Indenter G200 is their most advanced platform for exploring material properties at the nano and micro scales with ultrahigh resolution: 10 nano-Newton for load and 0.1nm for displacement, and at a temperature up to 350°C.
Through the CSM module, we can characterize materials at the multiscales from 5 nm to 0.5 mm (over 5 orders of magnitude) within minutes. The DCM II extends the range of load-displacement experimentation down to 3nN with the lowest noise floor of any instrument of its type. Through the NanoVision module, the nanoindenter can create nanoscale quantitative high-resolution scanning topographical images, which is critical to test nanomaterials. Through the temperature-control module, the nanoindenter can characterize materials at various temperatures up to 350°C.
