In materials science, a phase is a physically homogeneous state of matter with a given chemical composition and arrangement of atoms. The simplest examples are the three states of matter (solid, liquid, or gas) of a pure element. The solid, liquid, and gas states of a pure element obviously have the same chemical composition, but each phase is obviously distinct physically due to differences in the bonding and arrangement of atoms.
