Device Physics Graduate Programs?

I am currently a double major in EE and physics due to graduate in spring 2008. I want to go to graduate school to study semiconductor device physics, or perhaps molecular electronics or organic electronics. Should I be looking into EE programs or applied physics programs? I know it would depend on the school, but in general, where is most of the device physics research done: EE or applied physics?

Also, can some of you give me some good groups working on semiconductor device physics or molecular/organic electronics? I am honestly having trouble finding which schools have the best device physics groups.

Lots of EE programs offer concentrations in solid state devices, but I am also aware of applied physics programs which are tailored to device physics. Overall, I would say that there are far more EE programs doing device work.

The applied physics department at Texas Tech has a Master of Science internship (MSi) program in device physics. I was accepted into their program in 2006, but decided to attend graduate school elsewhere. In retrospect, I wish I had gone to Texas Tech.

UT Dallas has a pretty strong program in organic electronics and semiconductor devices. I actually did some work on organic solar cells at the UT Dallas Nanotech Institute as an undergraduate. They have state of the art clean-room and materials characterization facilities.
