I want to do research in Applied Physics, what should I do?

  1. Aug 22, 2015 #1
    I'm 15 years old and very good at solving hard logic problems. I know a little bit about college mathematics and physics, so I want to write papers.
    After thinking a lot I think Applied Physics is a relative new area that has a lot opportunities, so I want to do research in it. What should I do? where can I start?

    Before you can do well in applied physics, you should learn the basic physics and be good in it. So, I suggest that you start looking for a good highschool or undergrad textbook in physics (I don't believe there is highschool level manuscript on applied physics) and hone your physical intuition with it. Just an advice, applied physics is a broad field as you can find many things in nature that can be manipulated to be of use in our life. As you proceed in your long awaiting adventure, you may want to narrow down your research field into specific area of applied physics.
