NDT4INDUSTRY – Recent developments in advanced NDT

At the Fraunhofer IKTS site in Dresden-Klotzsche our focus is on developing advanced non-destructive testing solutions for ceramics and many other materials.

We are constantly working on new solutions. We would like to present some of these to you in our new NDT4Industry online seminar series.

We want to make it live and interactive – so keep watching!

A novel in-situ 4-point-bend system for stress impact analysis


with Christoph Sander
(Fraunhofer IKTS, Nanomechanics and Reliability for Microelectronics)

A novel in-situ 4-point bending system was developed at Fraunhofer IKTS to characterize the influence of mechanical stress on e.g., microelectronic devices, thin film systems, novel materials, etc. On the strength of the low build height of the system, the setup with clamped samples can be used in-situ in several tools like Nanoindenters, SEMs or Raman systems. Due to the homogeneous bending moment between the inner support points, the sample region that can be studied under stress is relatively large. Additionally, based on the innovative sample mounting, tensile and compressive stress ca be alternatingly applied on the specimen surface without changing the setup and unmounting the sample.
