Hysitron – TEM/SEM Picoindenters

Versatile depth-sensing indenters for in-situ experimentation in electron microscopes.

The RD 100 Award-winning PI 95 TEM Picolndenter, designed and manufactured by Hysitron, Inc., is the first depth-sensing nano-mechanicai test instrument for in-situ experimentation in TEMs. The primary output of this novel instrument is a rigorous force-displacement curve to be time correlated to the corresponding TEM video. This exciting capability enables the researcher to study, for example, the evolution of a sample’s microstructure during indentation.

This instrument also can be used to conduct in-situ TEM compression tests of nanoparticles, nanopillars, and other nanostructures when equipped with a flat punch. Finally, this instrument provides the unprecedented opportunity to bridge the gap between experimentation and simulation.
