Resolution & Range: 
In XP mode 0- 500 millinewton In DCM mode 0- 100 millinewton
Nanoindentation is a method of measurement of the mechanical properties of small volume of material as Hardness, young modulus, Fracture toughness, creep, load displacement curve. This is applicable for mechanical properties of surfaces, coatings, multiphase materials and layered materials. Sample: Thin-films coatings, Bulk solid materials.
Sample type: 
10-20 mm flat smooth surface samples
