Fossil Mechanical Properties using Nanoindentation

In this application, the Nanovea Mechanical Test er, in Nanoindentation mode is used to map fossil mechanical properties of different locations of an ammonite fossil sample. We would like to  showcase the capacity of Nanovea Mechanical Tester in performing nanoindentation mapping on a fossil sample with high precision and reproducibility.
