Of all the Physics sub-fields, condensed matter has probably had the greatest impact on our daily lives. It has spawned high technology developments from semiconductor electronics (used in modern computers, phones and other electronic products) to modern plastic and other exotic composite materials. Condensed matter is the area of physics most closely related to high technology and industrial applications. It's breadth and utility encourages interdisciplinary interactions with many other groups on and off of the Maryland campus.
