Bruker Hysitron PI 88 SEM PicoIndenter test instrument

Thursday, 15 November, 2018 | Supplied by: Bruker Pty Ltd

The Hysitron PI 88 SEM PicoIndenter is an in-situ nanomechanical test instrument for SEM and FIB/SEM.

The instrument’s modular design also supports the company’s full suite of testing techniques for future upgradability, now including 800°C heating, scratch testing, 5-axis sample positioning, electrical characterisation, dynamic fatigue testing and an interchangeable extended range (500 mN, 150 µm) transducer.

Built on Bruker’s capacitive transducer technology, the PI 88 comes standard with advanced XYZ sample positioning stages which provide greater travel range (>8 mm) for accessing more sample area with high resolution and linearity. These stages also provide the foundation for the various upgrade modules available for the PI 88. Coupling the stages with a variable-load frame transducer design featuring user-changeable load cells allows users to meet evolving research demands.

The PI 88 mounts easily to the SEM stage without being a permanent fixture in the microscope. The compact design of the instrument allows for maximum stage tilt and minimum working distance for optimal imaging during testing.
