Folks, I do Logic design and verification of Multi-core chips for a living (4th year in Semiconductor/Computer HW industry). I don't have much of a background in Physics outside my high school and some Applied Physics courses that I took in BS-EE and MS-EE. I don't covet a PhD in Physics, all I want is that at least 50% of what I do for a living involves solving Physics problems. Is that even possible? I've this idea: I'll get a PhD admit in EE. Since I've Solid State Physics background from my MS, I'll do my research in Quantum Computing for which I'll need to study Quantum Physics. Bottom line: I'm working towards a PhD in EE, but under the hood its mostly Physics. Once I get my PhD in EE I could end up in a semiconductor company R&D doing research and solving problems in ...drumroll... Physics, for a living. You can comment "Are you sure you're a Logic designer?". I know. I must be overlooking a lot of things here. That's why I depend on you guys to expose flaws in my idea and beat the hell out of it. Thanks.
