Micro- and Nanometer Coatings and Modified Near-Surface Layers. Methods and Testing Devices of Mechanical Properties

K. V. Gogolinsky, V. A. Syasko

Physical principles and specific characteristics of mechanical properties measurement of coatings and surface layers with thickness less than 10 µm are presented in the article. Approach that enables hardness to be determined as dimensional physical quantity is explained. Method of instrumented indentation, its features and existing devices are analyzed in detail. The actual situation and issues of metrological support are described in the article.
