Paper Abstract

Nanoindenter provides an approach for assessing mechanical properties in micro-electronics devices and films based on quantitative, controlled nanoindentation of surfaces, with the convenience of modern automation. It is also suitable to measure mechanical properties of biomaterials. Nanoindenter for biomaterial testing in bone and dentin was widely used. Recently some studies of nanoindentation properties in insect were carried out. While the surface roughness of natural biomaterials problem should not to be ignored in nanoindentation testing. The surface roughness will critically affect the precision of result of nanoindentation testing and caused error data. In this paper, the biomaterials specimen preparation methods for nanoindentation testing will be reviewed.
