Comparison of measured areas based on electron and optical microscopy and areas based on contact stiffness. The solid line represents A(stiffness)=A(optical). The best fit to the data is a line of slope of 1.03 (dotted line).
Grahic Jump Location
Hardness vs. load for annealed and work-hardened α-brass. The data includes nanohardness and microhardness measurements.
