Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "Nanoindentation measurements were made using a Berkovich shaped indenter in a continuous stiffness mode. This method allows a continuous measurement of modulus and hardness over the complete indentation depth. Parabolic and linear trends were found for the Young's modulus of the investigated compound semiconductors."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In case of hardness, parabolic trends associated with solid solution strengthening were found for all investigated material systems."
