This paper presents an overview of two advanced surface mechanical testing techniques: the instrumented indentation testing and the single point scratch testing techniques. Both can be used for studying bulk or thick materials, they are however powerful tools in the cases of thin layers and small features, elastic materials and surfaces with poor optical contrast. Most samples can be tested “as is” or with minimal preparation.
