Materials Physics

Materials physics is the use of physics to explain the materials' physical properties. It is a combination of physical sciences such as chemistry, solid mechanics, physics of the solid state, and science of matter. The physics of materials is considered a subset of condensed matter physics and applies fundamental concepts of condensed matter to complex multiphase media, including technical materials of interest. Present fields in which physicists of materials work include optical, electrical, magnetic materials, novel materials and structures, material quantum phenomena, nonequilibrium physics, and physics of soft condensed matter.
