Prof. Michael Zehetbauer

Michael Zehetbauer

Prof. Michael Zehetbauer has published about 260 mostly peer-reviewed papers in high impact journals, which have been currently cited more than 5000 times, corresponding to an h-factor of 38. He has organized 9 international conferences and the publication of related proceedings, and has also edited the book "Bulk Nanostructured Materials" with 30 reviews of articles from world-renowned authors.

Prof. Michael Zehetbauer, University of Vienna, Austria

The scientific oeuvre of Prof. Michael Zehetbauer is based on fundamental works in the plasticity of metals and of polymers. Besides new findings raising the importance of dislocation kinetics for the strength of semicrystalline polymers, he has established the stages IV and V of plastic deformation, and a physical model called "Zehetbauer's model" simulating the strengthening in solids in terms of statistical interactions of screw and edge dislocations, and deformation-induced vacancies. His high expertise in large plastic deformation led him to pioneer the famous field of "Severe Plastic Deformation" (SPD) which allows to achieve nanocrystalline materials in bulk shape. Here, he highlighted the role of hydrostatic pressure for both reaching ultrahigh deformation strains and very high densities of defects especially vacancies which can cause considerable hardening as well. As of recent, M. Zehetbauer has been demonstrating the high potential of those SPD-induced defects for increasing the efficiency of functional materials, such as nanostructured thermoelectrics, hydrogen storage materials, and biodegradable implant materials. Following those important achievements of Prof. Zehetbauer, this symposium welcomes contributions illuminating and examining the complexities of Intelligent Sustainable Advanced Materials (ISAM) within the following topics:
