Applied physics is intended for a particular technological or practical use. It is considered as a bridge between physics and engineering. The Word Applied is derived from "pure" by a subtle combination of factors, such as the motivation and attitude of researchers and the nature of the relationship to the technology or science that may be affected by the work. It usually differs from engineering in that an applied physicist may not be designing something in particular, but rather is using physics or conducting physics research with the aim of developing new technologies or solving an engineering problem. This approach is similar to that of applied mathematics. Applied physics is rooted in the fundamental truths and basic concepts of the physical sciences, but is concerned with the utilization of scientific principles in practical devices and systems, and in the application of physics in other areas of science.
Edelweiss publications has a rapid review process, it tries to publish the manuscript within 4-6 weeks of time after submission. Edelweiss Applied Science and Technology Journal promote articles of applied physics.
