I am a second year Physics student, and I have a summer research opportunity on Optics (for which the topic is uncertain). The topic will probably be related to Imaging in biological systems, Analogue computation using light and, Light scattering in correlated systems, as they are the topic of interest of the supervisor. I want to work in industry after graduation, and I would like to know a) answer for the title, b)would it be useful for applying to industry? I apologize for the vague word "industry", but I really don't know much about it. Thank you very much for your time.
