Nanoindentation testing is one of the only techniques that allows material responses to contact stresses to be explored in a controlled way and at high spatial resolutions of both contact depths and lateral position. Consequently, nanoindentation techniques are invaluable both for studying the mechanical properties of solids—especially brittle materials—in a nondestructive manner and for assessing the mechanical properties of surfaces at the spatial scales commensurate with tribological response.
