Cross-sectional high-resolution TEM imaging + FIB preparation

The sample cross-section is prepared with a focused ion beam (FIB) and then imaged with a high-resolution transmission electron microscope (HR-TEM). The resulting image resolution is very high, … Read more

TEM imaging

Imaging of the sample with transmission electron microscope (TEM). In typical measurement, several images with varying magnifications are taken to get a good overall view of the sample. Read more

TEM imaging + EDX

Imaging of the sample with transmission electron microscope (TEM) and determination of the elemental composition of the sample using electron dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). In typical measurement, several images with varying magnifications are taken to get a good … Read more

Vickers hardness of metals

EN ISO 6507
Vickers hardness is used to assess a material's ability to resist plastic deformation from a standard source. Vickers hardness testing is suitable for all metals. In the test, a standard-sized test head is pressed against the sample and … Read more

Chemical composition of copper alloys with OES

Optical emission spectrometry (OES) is used to determine the chemical composition of a plate-like copper sample. The elemental composition results are expressed as mass percentages. Read more

Cross-section SEM imaging + freeze fracturing preparation

A cross-section sample is prepared using freeze fracturing: the sample is frozen in liquid nitrogen (-195 C°), followed by cracking. The cracked surface is then imaged with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). … Read more

Linear thermal expansion of solids with a rod dilatometer

A dilatometer is used to determine the linear thermal expansion of a material as a function of temperature. The temperature range of the measurement is generally between 25 °C and 1,600 °C. There … Read more

Tensile test for metals at room temperature

EN ISO 6892-1
With tensile testing, the strength of metals and metal extrusion products can be determined. Properties that are deducted from the test data include tensile strength, yield strength, and modulus of elasticity. … Read more
