The article “Extraction of Flow Behavior and Hall–Petch Parameters Using a Nanoindentation Multiple Sharp Tip Approach” (A. Leitner, V. Maier-Kiener, D. Kiener, Cooperation of the Department Materials Physics and Department Physical Metallurgy and Materials Testing, Montanuniversität Leoben) has recently been awarded from the Wiley publishing company to be featured on their in-house news website “Advanced science news”. This platform attempts to present momentous advances in various fields of research for a wide public audience. The study presents a novel material testing technique which allows to extensively characterize the mechanical flow behavior of metals by instrumented nanoindentation experiments on the nano- and microscale. Due to its high local resolution and reliability, the method is a potential candidate for the characterization and quality control of modern nanostructured materials or microelectronic components.
