Condensed Matter Physics
Materials science is central to a technically advanced society. The development of materials is largely concerned with functionalization, i.e. the molecular engineering of systems to obtain specific mechanical, electrical, optical or magnetic properties. In the development of materials researchers from widely differing fields are involved in everything from molecular physics and molecular modeling to macroscopic processing techniques and system modeling.
