The June, 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin focused on Advances in In-situ Nanomechanical Testing. In situ nanomechanical testing can provide critical insights into the fundamental processes that lead to deformation phenomena in materials. Simultaneous observations of deformation phenomena and measurements of mechanical response in situ allow for nanomechanical testing information to be connected to models to elucidate the subtlety and complexity of how materials respond to stress and strain. Discussion on the current state of the art for in situ nanomechanical testing and future opportunities in imaging, strain sensing, and testing environments are also addressed in this issue of MRS Bulletin.
