Applications of NanoScan micro-hardness and nano-testing

The unique features of the NanoScan instruments allow their application both in the applications traditional for nanohardness meters and SPM, and in the areas inaccessible for such devices. Scanning nanohardness meters "NanoScan" are used to investigate mechanical and electrical properties as well as to measure linear dimensions and control the quality of surfaces in the following areas:
Materials Science: Research and Engineering Applications
  • Nanophase and composite materials
  • Ultra-dispersed hard alloys
  • New hard and superhard materials
  • Structural nanomaterials: alloys, composites, ceramics
  • Thin Films and Coatings
  • Carbon nanomaterials and fibers
Industry: automotive, aerospace, machine tools
  • New structural and functional nanomaterials
  • Coatings for component protection and wear reduction
  • Coatings on cutting tools
  • Inspection of carbide tool bits
  • Diamonds and diamond powders
  • Nanostructured materials for nuclear power
  • Coatings for turbine blades
Measurement of linear dimensions in the nanometer range using a three-axis laser interferometer
  • New Semiconductor Materials
  • Optical Components
  • Micro- and Nanoelectromechanical Systems (MEMS and NEMS)
  • Microchannel wafers for night vision devices
  • Information Storage Devices
  • Nanolithography
