DCTC Nanoindented

This is the 3D view.

We had the idea of indent DCTC in a piece of quartz... so we did...

This was our firts try and it took us less than one hour because we only did 21 indents, the letter D gets one extra indent. Actually the indents themselves take only 2 seconds, 1 to load and another 1 to unload, but the wating time to stabilize the piezo in it's right position requires more time (1 minute for us). The view area of the sample is 100 micrometers squared.
If we have time we will try another time but with more indents and we will give tilted coordinates to the instrument hoping to get a straight image at the end.
