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.
