Inverse Method to Determine Mechanical Properties of Thin Film by Nanoindentation and Finite Element Analysis
As a reliable tool to measure the Young’s modulus, nanoindention technique has been used widely recently. In this paper, nanoindetation technique was overviewed with its advantage and limitation and a new method was proposed to determine material properties of film, i.e. both Young’s modulus E and Poisson’s ratio ν from load-displacement curve of shallow-depth indentation using ‘inverse method’.
