Dr. Petr Sittner
Petr Šittner is a leading global expert in the field of research into so-called martensitic phase transformations and thermomechanical behaviour of shape memory metal alloys. He has been involved since 1991 in the research of martensitic transformations and related phenomena in solids and functional materials, particularly Shape Memory Alloys /SMA/, focussing:
The SMA research lab I founded and built with my colleague Vaclav Novak in the Institute of Physics CAS in 1995 has gradually developed into the present Functional Materials and Composites research group currently headed by L. Heller. The FMC research group currently focusses on the improvement of fatigue performance of NiTi alloys.
He's now mainly working on the following research areas:
He published more than 200 scientific articles within impacted journals, 2 book chapters, 3 patents and 2 patent applications
