Jones's interests include materials characterization, functional materials including piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials, mechanics of materials, and ceramic synthesis and properties.
Jacob Jones joins the NCSU Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) in August of 2013. After receiving his PhD from Purdue University in 2004, he was awarded an international postdoctoral fellowship from the National Science Foundation, working primarily at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia. He was an Assistant and Associate Professor in the Department of MSE at the University of Florida from 2006-2013. His research mainly develops structure-property-processing relationships in emerging functional materials through the use of advanced diffraction tools and techniques for in situ characterization. The primary functional materials under investigation include piezoelectric, ferroelectric, and multiferroic crystals, thin films, and ceramics which have applications including but not limited to impact and displacement sensors, actuators, microelectromechanical systems, diesel fuel injectors, vibrational energy harvesting, sonar, and ultrasound.
