With our complete suite of testing systems, it is simple to find the best platform for your specific application needs.

TI Series: Stand-Alone Platforms

TI 950 TriboIndenter®

The TriboIndenter is a stand-alone, automated, high-throughput instrument designed to support the numerous nanomechanical characterization techniques developed by Hysitron. The high-performance staging system and transducer technology offers superior stability and flexibility to accommodate a wide range of applications, sample types, and sizes. The comprehensive set of testing methods offered make the TI 950 the most versatile nanomechanical characterization tool available for scientists, engineers, and researchers.

TI 750 Ubi™

The TI 750 Ubi series is designed for dedicated materials applications providing maximum performance. This stand-alone instrument provides quantitative nanomechanical characterization within a compact, single platform adapted to the customer's needs.

PI Series: In-Situ Nanomechanical Testing for Electron Microscopy

TEM: PI 95 TEM PicoIndenter®
SEM: PI 85 SEM PicoIndenter® & PI 87 SEM PicoIndenter®

The PI 95 and PI 85 PicoIndenter instruments from Hysitron  are the first full-fledged, depth-sensing indenters capable of direct-observation nanomechanical testing in transmission electron   (PI 95) and scanning electron (PI 85 and PI 87) microscopes.    This enables e-correlation of TEM/SEM image and quantitative load-displacement data in-situ.

TS Series: Nanomechanical Testing for AFM

TS 75 TriboScope®

The TS series of nanomechanical test instruments offers industry-leading nanoscale mechanical characterization combined         with in-situ scanning probe microscopy (SPM) imaging coupled      to a commercial AFM.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
