Hysitron Triboscope Nanomechanical Test System for AFM

Quantitative, rigid probe nanoindentation and nanotribological characterisation

Bruker NanoSurfaces

Bruker’s Hysitron TriboScope® delivers quantitative, rigid-probe nanoindentation and nanotribological characterization capabilities to the world of atomic force microscopy. The Hysitron TriboScope interfaces with Bruker’s Dimension Icon®, Dimension Edge™, and MultiMode® 8 AFMs to expand the characterisation capabilities of these microscopes. By utilizing a rigid test probe, the TriboScope removes the intrinsic limitations, variability, and complexity associated with cantilever-based measurements to deliver quantitative and repeatable mechanical and tribological characterisation over nanometer-to-micrometer length scales.

The TriboScope Advances Your Research with Innovative Testing Modes

Quasi-Static Nanoindentation

Perform quantitative measurement of elastic modulus, hardness, creep, stress relaxation, and fracture toughness of localised microstructures, interfaces, small surface features, and thin films

In-Situ SPM Imaging

Utilise the same test probe for testing and topographic imaging for nanometer precision test placement accuracy and the ability to characterise post-test material deformation behavior.


Raster scan the test probe over the sample surface at a user-definable force setpoint for quantitative wear resistance characterisation at the nanoscale.


Perform quantitative scratch/mar resistance, friction coefficient, and thin film adhesion measurements with Bruker’s exclusive 2D lateral force transducer technology.

nanoDMA III - Dynamic Nanoindentation

Continuously measure elastic-plastic and viscoelastic properties as a function of indentation depth, frequency, and time with Bruker’s nanoDMA® III option.
