The company comprises of world-class scientists and engineers with unparalleled expertise in advanced instrumentation software, precision mechanical design, and materials science.

Over the last three decades, nanomechanical science has developed as the technique of choice for measuring the mechanical properties of small volumes of materials such as thin films.

The free forums will be held in Ke Chieh Tech Limited Company and National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering of Taipei on March 13, Tsinghua University in Beijing on March 15, and Shanghai Jiaotong University in Shanghai on March 17.

Professors, scientists, and students that deal with biomaterials, nanocomposites, metal alloys, polymers, and plastics are encouraged to attend the forum. Attendees will be able to receive theoretical and practical knowledge about thin-film modeling, dynamic indentation, the Oliver-Pharr method and contact mechanics.

Sebastian Ward, the vice president of sales and marketing at Nanomechanics Inc., said: "Our goal for the forum is to provide the most current information to those working in this field and enable them to engage with pioneers of the industry and ask questions on these topics."

"We also want to encourage the Chinese and North American scientists to research and work together," he added.

Dr. Warren C. Oliver, the president of Nanomechanics. Inc., will be presenting "Recent Advances in Materials Characterization Using Instrumented Indentation Tests," which covers three new instrumented indentation techniques in materials characterization.

Dr. Yujie Meng, the business development manager of Asia at Nanomechanics, Inc., will be presenting 'Nanomechanics: Unbridled Innovation', which covers how the products, key technologies and technical expertise of the company can benefit research.

In addition to this, professors will present interesting topics on the forums. Prof. George M. Pharr will discuss "Measurement of Power Law Creep Parameters by Nanoindentation," Prof. Qiang Guo will present "Strengthening and Toughening Mechanisms in Graphene-al Nanolaminated Composite Micro-pillars," and Prof. Qunyang Li will deliver "Understanding and Tuning Frictional Properties of Graphene at the Nanoscale."
