Nanoindentation testing is becoming increasingly used in a wide variety of research and manufacturing areas, ranging from the testing of silicon wafers to the characterization of hard coatings for cutting tools and dental restoratives to optical components. This book presents a comprehensive and detailed overview of the field of nanoindentation. It discusses the underlying theory, methods of testing, international standards, surface forces and adhesion, commercially available instruments, and sample applications. Self-contained, the treatment is aimed at those entering the field, but will also be a useful reference for the more experienced researcher.
