Bruker Hysitron IntraSpect 360
In-situ mechanical property characterisation for X-ray microscopes and beamlines
The Hysitron IntraSpect 360 is an in-situ mechanical test instrument for X-Ray microscopes (XRM) and beamlines, for quantitative mechanical property characterisation.
Perform a variety of mechanical tests including:
The mechanical data can then be correlated to 2D or 3D images from your microscope, for studying material deformation, fracture and failure analysis eg crack propagation at the fibre-matrix interface, or void behaviour in weld joints.
- Seamless X-ray transparent window for unobstructed imaging
- Up to 10N of maximum force and 80μm of displacement
- Industry-leading transducer technology for stability
The IntraSpect 360 has a unique piezoelectric load cell and Hysitron’s reliable three plate capacitive transducer technology. This gives you a significant increase in displacement range, while still maintaining a very low noise floor. This exclusive design generates very little heat, giving you the best stability when in contact with the sample. This is especially important for exeperiments involving long data acquisition times, such as computed tomography (μCT). Studies as long as 168 hours have been performed successfully with Hysitron’s reference frequency correction technique.
