Nanoblisters have attracted attention due to their ability to controllably modulate the properties of two-dimensional materials. The accurate measurement or estimation of their properties is nontrivial and largely based on Hencky's theory. However, these estimates require a priori knowledge of material properties and propagate large errors. Here we show, through a systematic atomic force microscopy study, several strategies that lead to vastly enhanced characterization of nanoblisters. First, we find that nanoblisters may contain both liquid and gas, resolving an ongoing debate in the literature. Second, we demonstrate how to definitively determine the membrane thickness of a nanoblister and show that Hencky's theory can only reliably predict membrane thicknesses for small aspect ratios and small membrane thicknesses. Third, we develop a novel technique to measure the internal pressures of nanoblisters, which quantitatively agrees with Hencky's theory but carries a 1 order smaller propagated error.
