The main goal of experimental condensed matter physics is to seek an understanding of the macroscopic behavior of condensed matter from their microscopic interactions and symmetries through experiments. The fundamental concepts developed in condensed matter physics often have strong impact on other areas of physics. A large group of experimental physicists at Brown study various condensed forms of matter using a wide range of techniques.
