Physical Review Applied


The goal of Physical Review Applied is to promote the publication of the highest quality papers at the intersection of physics and engineering. We welcome papers in conventional applied physics, including research into materials science, surface and interface physics, device physics, condensed matter physics, and optics. Beyond that conventional description, we especially invite papers by physicists working on problems in engineering, and by engineers investigating systems involving physical mechanisms. We anticipate that by combining the best in physics with the best in engineering, we will strengthen both disciplines as well as provide new insights, foster new approaches, and promote new collaborations in a forum not available elsewhere.
