Surfaces are complex structures, and their interactions underpin a huge array of technologies. By modifying surfaces, engineering components can be augmented with enhanced properties or new ones not possible with a single bulk material. Surface engineering has a massive impact globally as an enabling technology and with its economic impact.
High temperature nanomechanics is a active area of research as the pursuit of high temperature hardness and toughness will allow for components to perform in ever more extreme environments. The Micro Materials NanoTest platform is capable of high temperature nanomechanical measurements over a range of different wear and characterisation conditions.
