Materials science is an interdisciplinary field involving the properties of matter and its application to various areas of science and engineering.
It includes elements of applied physics and chemistry, as well as chemical, mechanical, civil and electrical engineering. Materials science focuses on the relationship between the atomic and molecular structure of a material, the properties of the material (such as strength, electrical conductivity or optical properties), and ways in which the material is manufactured or processed into a shape or product.
Quantum technologies will bring new capabilities to the sector as they are adopted in the coming years and decades. Discover how ID Quantique’s infrared single-photon detectors and super-conducting nanowire detectors, coupled with the ID900 Time Controller, can be used to provide greatly improved observations.
