Experimental comparison of common nano and micro scales for hardness evaluation has been performed on metal samples and discussed in details. Instrumented indentation was found advantageous in both repeatability and a number of measured parameters over classical hardness methods for metals, while sclerometry was advantageous for ultra-thin films.
