Department of Functional Materials

belongs to the Condensed Matter Division of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences

The department consists of 3 research groups FMC, MNB and MCM

Research within the department focusses on  active or passive functionality imprinted to the solid state materials on the structural level,

Currently, we are mainly working on:

Recent Key Results

Congratulations to an excellent article published in high impacted journal Bioactive Materials by J. Pinc and colleagues from 4 FZU departments.

A detailed mechanism of degradation behaviour of biodegradable as-ECAPed Zn-0.8Mg-0.2Sr with emphasis on localized corrosion attack

An article of FMC group on thermally induced martensite reorientation and plastic deformation in NiTi published in Acta Materialia

Xiaohui Bian's first article, as a member of FMC group, was published in high impacted journal  Applied Materials Today . It focuses analysis of  texture evolution during the tensile deformation of martensite in nanocrystalline NiTi in terms of activated deformation mechanisms
