Timeline of Innovation

The field of nanoindentation was co-founded by KLA’s Dr. Warren Oliver almost 40 years ago, and KLA Instruments has continued to foster a culture of innovation. From releasing the first nanoindenter in the market to expanding nanoindentation technology into fast, high-temperature and high strain rate testing, we have continued to develop new static and dynamic measurement types, driving forward the next generation of nanomechanical testing of material hardness.
