In the interest of understanding contact mechanics, friction and wear processes where plastic deformation occurs between rough surfaces, significant effort has and continues to be applied to understand single asperity elastic-plastic contacts. The main tools used in obtaining experimental data with which to inform and validate simulation methods in this area of study are nano and micro indenters. This article presents some of the less commonly considered phenomena which may affect the interpretation of experimental data from such apparatus. The interpretation of AFM pull off data is briefly discussed and invasive effects of electron imaging are highlighted.
