Applied Physics is an innovative interdisciplinary field that involves nanotechnologies, advanced materials, advanced instrumentation, photonics, biotechnology, and advanced manufacturing. Students pursuing a degree in applied physics are immersed in the cultures of physics, engineering, and technology to meet the relentlessly accelerating demands of a technologically demanding society, industry, and academia. Applied physics thrives on solid collaboration and innovation among academic and research institutions, the industry and the use of state-of-the-art converging core technologies. Students pursuing a degree in applied physics should invest on building instrumental knowledge in this highly interdisciplinary field. At the same time, they need to engage in leading-edge research where the practical applications of these fundamental concepts and the effectiveness of leveraging existing technologies or introducing novel creative technologies can be explored as a step to advance further knowledge in the field and introduce new solutions to critical societal and industrial challenges and problems. Post-graduate work can enhance students' knowledge by exposing them to a wide repertoire of theoretical frameworks and revolutionary studies undertaken in the field. The thesis can guide students in applying this newly constructed knowledge to explore its potential applications to solve real life problems and propose new cutting-edge solutions to instrumental societal problems. Drawing on its strong interdisciplinary orientation and in close collaboration with their academic advisor, students should apply the techniques and training that they have gained in the field in order to branch out in new directions of research that are deeply embedded in the multidisciplinary nature of applied physics. To guide students in understanding some of the underlying complex processes involved in composing a thesis, this book provides a synoptic view of the general requirements, as well as the guidelines and procedures that students need to follow to plan, design, and conduct research. The book introduces the rules, policies, and general requirements for composing a master thesis. Further, the book is designed to guide students in pursuing state-of-the art thesis research that is grounded in innovative techniques, the multidisciplinary nature of applied physics, and the theoretical and practical principles of the field. It aims to introduce students to the importance of engaging in scholastic inquiry by critically examining the current body of research, undertaking new innovative approaches to research, and generating high quality results that can be presented in their master thesis work. In addition to the guidelines explicated in this book, students must adhere to the policies, rules, and regulations of their academic institution, the code of conduct, and academic and research integrity policies. In close collaboration with their academic advisor, students must fulfil all departmental requirements and follow all university binding policies, guidelines, and regulations for the completion of their thesis work. Students should also consult very closely with the post-graduate program chair and post-graduate administrator to meet all graduate college regulations and policies. All students need to be in good standing and demonstrate satisfactory academic progress before the completion of their thesis work.
