Sputtered aluminium layers from 250 to 2000 nm thick on (100) silicon have been indented to various depths and the nanoindentation load-displacement curves recorded. The loading curves were then simulated by finite element analysis and the results compared to identify the yield properties of the coating. Modelling data for thicker samples closely follows experimental data, but for thinner coatings there is a considerable gradient in properties through the film thickness. © Carl Hanser Verlag.
