Other Techniques in Nanoindentation
Nanoindentation has proven to be a very versatile method of mechanical testing. It is often considered to be non-destructive in the sense that the indentations are in general, too small to be visible to the naked eye and, for the most part, the test does not impair the structural integrity of the specimen. Compared to the previous chapters, we now turn to a discussion of various unusual and advanced methods of testing that illustrate the versatility of the method.
