Title: Hardness Testing at Multiple Length Scales PDF
Url: http://www.mse.umd.edu/news/documents/hardness-testing-multilength.pdf
Creator: Martinez-Miranda, Luz
Publisher: University of Maryland - College Park
Description: University of Maryland, Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Lab Coordinator Robert Bonenberger, Ph.D., MSE Professor and Chair Robert M. Briber, Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) Associate Professor Hugh Bruck, Jaime Cardena-Garcia, Ph.D., and MSE Associate Professor Luz Martinez-Miranda recently completed work on an NSF-funded project titled Development of Educational Materials and Acquisition of Equipment for a Nanoscale to Microscale Engineering Laboratory. The project, supported by the NSF's Course, Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) program, was used to develop new laboratory experiments that effectively engage undergraduate engineering students in the scientific processes and exploration of concepts in nanotechnology. Work funded under the proposal also helped integrate significant advances in nanotechnology research with the undergraduate engineering laboratory curriculum through the development of a new teaching lab.

Two significant experimental systems were assembled to give students an enhanced laboratory experience: a pair of micro-tensile testers, used for determining the mechanical properties of micron-scale devices and materials; and an integrated nanoindentation/scanning probe microscope (SPM) testing system, used for measuring the hardness and elasticity of materials at the nanoscale, and for imaging samples.

Bruck's junior-level ENME 382: Engineering Materials and Manufacturing Processes class was one of those that benefited from the new equipment and curriculum.

This is one example of lab modules created for it as part of the overall project.
