MEMS instruments offers a unique service to measure the mechanical performance and reliability of thin films: ductility, fracture toughness, yield strength, ...
Because these properties are largely unknown at submicron scales, we help our customers design more reliable products: e.g. more resistant to cracks, scratch and corrosion.
We provide you with a "MEMS gauge" on which you deposit your film. We then use proprietary processes to free the film from the substrate, and to perform a pull test on it with micromachines (MEMS). This process has been developed at Université catholique de Louvain.
This has applications for R&D, Quality Assurance and Quality Control in the materials and micro-electronics industries, among others.
