Physics

physics

The overlap between physics and materials science has led to the offshoot field of materials physics, which is concerned with the physical properties of materials. New physics emerge because of the diverse new material properties that need to be explained. Researchers concerned with materials physics are critical to bridging the gap between developing new materials and their practical applications. Exploration of material physics may also involve some component of analysis and characterization or computational study.
