Is it even possible? (A double degree Ph.D in both fields) Both of them are pretty much related to physics...so I think it would be possible. Is there any other field, particularly in physics, that is better then nanotechnology with astronomy. I know that there are extensive research in nanotechnology stuff(and its quit an interesting field), so it seems like a good field. And astronomy is really a passion for me, so theres no doubt that I will be taking something aside that. But I have also some interest in other fields in physics, hence the reason why I would like to know if a double degree(preferably Ph.D) is possible. Also, it seems like a double degree is referred to a student working for two different university degrees in parallel, either at the same institution or at different institutions..That would mean that you *wont* be doing 30 years in university (15 years at least for 1 Ph.D.. multiply by 2 ^.^ )? Of course hard work is expected for this, right? What are your thoughts? And,um, what do you think of the following fields, *which one* seems to be actively researched (or *which ones*)? - Plasma physics - Optics - Optoelectronics - Materials physics - Geophysics - Communication physics Anything else you might want to add to the list?
