Aims and scope

EPJ AP is a peer-reviewed international journal devoted to the promotion of recent progresses in the field of applied physics dedicated to materials and solid-state sciences properties.

The articles published in EPJ AP (original paper, short communication, review, mini-review) span a large spectrum of applied physics research for materials and solid-state properties.


  • Materials and devices: semiconductors, metals, ceramics and oxides, soft matter, organic materials for devices, biomaterials, nanomaterials, hybrid materials, surface, interface, thin films.
  • Applications: optic, electronic, spintronic, magnetism, superconductivity, transport properties, reactivity, energy transfer, conversion and storage, mechanical properties. Elaboration process, growth and environmental-induced structure evolution.
  • The journal also covers a section dedicated to Instrumentation for characterization dealing with Microscopy and Spectroscopy techniques.
