Nanoanalytics for damage diagnostics in material fatigue.

Nanoanalytics plays a crucial role in the evaluation of damage in the diagnostics of material fatigue and wear. By examining material samples at the nanoscale and microscale levels, causes of damage and mechanisms of action can be identified and analyzed.

Advanced techniques such as electron microscopy, spectroscopic methods enable detailed characterization of damage and wear traces. Nanoanalysis provides insights into material structure and composition at the atomic level, leading to a better understanding of damage mechanisms and supporting the development of preventive measures.
