Halloween Teddy Bear - October 2016

Halloween teddy bear - October 2016

In-situ SEM nanoindentation is a powerfull technique to investigate the mechanical behavior of submicrometric objects. In this picture, a solid phase dewetted gold island on sapphire has been indented several times in a scanning electronic microscope, until a so cute Halloween Teddy Bear was obtained. Behind this funny picture is the evidence of the great spatial precision which can be reached with the in-situ SEM nanoindenter developped in the SIMaP lab. This is also a nice illustration of the expression:"A sword of Damocles hangs over head"...
