• #### Cracking in brittle materials during low-load indentation and its relation to fracture toughness ﻿

(1995)
Nanoindentation is a widely recognized method for characterizing the mechanical properties of thin films and small volumes. This thesis reports the results of an investigation aimed at developing a technique by which the ...
