Measuring Stress-Strain Curves for Shale Rock by Dynamic Instrumented Indentation - Application Note
Study of Dynamic instrumented indentation as an ideal way to measure the mechanical properties of shale rock. Note includes samples that can be just a few millimeters in extent, and shows that ion-milling is an adequate method of surface preparation. The note proves that test forces greater than 300mN, the primary results (reduced modulus and hardness) are accurate, repeatable, and relevant.

Mapping the Mechanical Properties of SAC 305 Solder with Express Test - Application Note
The note discusses the use of nano-indentation to map the mechanical properties of a SAC 305 solder joint, because electronic reliability depends on mechanical integrity. Traditional nano-indentation testing time for such mapping, would have been prohibitively long but with the Express Test we were able to generate quantitative and highly resolved hardness maps in about an hour.
