High throughput experimentation is a possibility to develop new materials in a short time in order to meet the demands of efficient characterisation of compositions. Thus, fundamentals of a new hardness measurement method are investigated based on laser-induced shockwaves. In this study, plasma is created with a nanosecond pulsed TEA CO2 laser on top of an indenter. Further interactions of the plasma with the high intensity laser beam result in a shockwave. The pressure of the shockwave is used to push an indenter inside a material surface. So far, the energy transfer of the shockwave on indenters is not fully understood. Therefore, pendulum experiments are conducted to calculate how much energy can be transferred from the shockwave into the indenter. For these experiments, a bob, which geometry is equal to the indenter geometry, is connected to a thread pendulum and maximum deflection angles are recorded with a high-speed camera. Under standard conditions and the assumption of a spherical expansion of the shockwave, the experiments show that with a 6 J pulse energy a shockwave energy of up to 9 μJ can be used for indentation tests.
