April 7, 2011 — Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) released Agilent NanoSuite 6.0, an enhanced-performance software package designed for use with Agilent Nano Indenter G200, G300 and T150 UTM systems. NanoSuite 6.0 promises speed, flexibility, ease of use and new application methods for nanomechanical properties measurements involving polymers, composites, thin film materials, MEMS, surface topology, stiffness mapping, and scratch testing.
NanoSuite 6.0 builds upon the intuitive interface, versatile imaging capabilities, survey scanning, and streamlined test-method development features introduced in the package’s previous iteration. The NanoSuite 6.0 software package offers several groundbreaking test methods, including an exclusive nanoindentation technique for substrate-independent measurements of thin film materials as well as test techniques for polymers.
To increase throughput and productivity, NanoSuite 6.0 facilitates the fast creation of new batches of tests for multiple samples. In addition to easily adding, editing, reviewing, or deleting samples, researchers can select a previously run batch of tests as a template for the current run. They can set up a standard batch of tests comprising 25 or more samples in five minutes or less.
NanoSuite 6.0 enables users to plot two-dimensional graphs, then export them directly to Microsoft Excel, with axis titles, scales, etc., exactly as they appeared on the monitor.
NanoSuite 6.0 also provides a new data structure that organizes sample files into projects and subprojects, Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit) compliance for current systems, and a convenient PDF printer to replace hardware printers.
Agilent’s Nanoindentation instruments conform to the ISO 14577 standard. These state-of-the-art solutions ensure reliable, high-precision measurement of nanomechanical properties for research and industry. Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) provides chemical analysis, life sciences, electronics and communications measurement products. Information about Agilent is available at www.agilent.com
