Software for nanomechanical testing

Agilent

Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the availability of a new, more powerful version of its popular NanoSuite software package (formerly known as TestWorks). Designed for use with the company's line of nanoindentation and tensile-testing instruments, Agilent NanoSuite 5.0 software offers advanced features such as enhanced imaging capabilities, survey scanning and a new test method development environment. All NanoSuite 5.0 functions have been optimized to help researchers run tests and manage data with unprecedented speed and ease.

"NanoSuite 5.0 immediately extends the impressive utility of Agilent G200 and G300 Nano Indenters, as well as that of Agilent T150 universal testing machines," said Jeff Jones, operations manager for Agilent's nanoinstrumentation facility in Chandler, Ariz.

NanoSuite 5.0 provides a wide array of enhanced imaging capabilities, including profile cross-sectional imaging, real-time adjustment of scanning parameters, polynomial distortion or leveling correction, plane-fit leveling, and an expanded color palette. For scanning of areas up to 500 µm x 500 µm, NanoSuite 5.0 offers a survey scanning option. Flatness of travel is 0.1 percent per 100 µm. This option is ideal for scratch-and-wear testing on large samples. It is also very useful for working with large samples that have irregular shapes, large samples composed of heterogeneous materials and various metals, ceramics and hard-coated materials.

The Explorer version of NanoSuite 5.0 enables researchers to write their own test methods via a new, easier-to-use, method-creation protocol that reduces the lines of code needed for customized test development. No other commercially available package offers this degree of flexibility and control.
