What we do

Our micromachines are aimed at the study of material damaging under thermo-mechanical loading. They allow to perform in situ tests directly in a SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope), or with an optical microscopes, and to study the influence of internal stresses on the behaviour of materials using different diffraction techniques.

Tests can be performed while doing a direct observation:

The complete characterization of materials can finally be evaluated while they sustain a thermo-mechanical loading. The crystalline orientation, the failure of particles as well as the initiation and the propagation of cracks can fully be observed under loading. Thanks to the design of this micromachine, it is possible to combine the different tests with other techniques in SEM:

Local analysis of chemical composition, phases, crystallographic orientation, deformation and stresses on different scales of the microstructure aren’t limited anymore to post mortem investigations.
