All-in-one equipment to measure mechanical properties and residual stress in Nano-scales

Unlike existing nano equipment, Material Properties Tester NANO-

AIS is a testing equipment that evaluates residual stress and tensile

properties at nano scale. Using instrumented indentation technique, we

obtained indentation load –displacement curve and it was applied to

self-developed technology to evaluate residual stress between the

layers, and tensile properties of grain and grain boundary.

NANO-AIS uses Piezo Actuation System for precise control of the load

and approval and it also features to block external environmental

elements such as outside temperature and vibration. Furthermore, it

comes with high magnification optical microscope for the test location,

and it is replaceable with special microscope like atomic force

microscopy as user demands. For user’s convenience, it comes with

software that features various automated testing system, analysis and

reports preparation.
