The following outline is provided as an overview of, and topical guide to, applied physics:

Applied physics – physics intended for a particular technological or practical use.[1] It is usually considered as a bridge or a connection between "pure" physics and engineering.[2]

Applied Physics – is the proper name of a journal founded and edited by Helmut K.V. Lotsch in 1972 and published by Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg New York from 1973 on[3]

Topics in Applied Physics – is the proper name of a series of quasi-monographs founded by Helmut K.V. Lotsch and published by Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg New York[4]
