We propose to acquire a nanoindenter for nanoscale force measurement, and material property characterization.The instrument will be used to support research and education for our current ARO sponsored project. We will employ the instrument, and incorporate our AFM-confocal integrated system to systematically characterize mechanical properties of ivy nanoparticles. The experiences gained through this research will be used for future DoD projects.
