Materials Science

Those parts of Chemistry, Physics or even Biology that deal with the physical properties of materials. This is often in the context of applied science, in which the properties under study have some industrial purpose.

The study of the electroluminescent properties of inorganic and organic semiconductors, for example, is a form of materials science.
