Schwartz's interests include processing-structure-property relationships and failure mechanisms in superconducting materials and systems, multiferroic/optical-magneto-electric thin films and devices, topological insulators, and other functional oxides. He focuses on the scientific challenges in transitioning a new material into a technologically functional material.
Justin Schwartz joined NCSU Department of Materials Science and Engineering as Department Head and Kobe Steel Distinguished Professor in 2009. Prior to joining NCSU, he was the Jack E. Crow Professor of Engineering at the Florida State University. His group’s primary research interests are in the underlying science that drives performance of advanced oxide materials, including mechanical and functional failure, manufacturing, processing, packaging and system integration. His research group is cross-disciplinary, integrating physics and chemistry of novel materials with mechanical, electrical, magnetic, thermal, and systems issues, bridging the underlying nanoscopic phenomena to macroscopic behaviors.
