What is Applied Physics?

Applied Physics is rooted in the fundamental truths and basic laws that describe the world around us. Experimentation is the gateway to discovering more about our world. Applied Physics focuses on using scientific principles in practical devices and systems, and on the application of physics in other fields. A great deal of the work done by physicists is not immediately visible. But without recent breakthroughs in physics, the mobile phone and the laptop would have been power-guzzling machines that weigh a ton and lab-on-a-chip technology would still be science fiction.
