Greetings! I am currently trying to focus my research interests before I begin applying to grad schools this coming fall. When it comes to Physics, I really enjoy Condensed Matter and everything related to it (say, Thermal Physics, Statistical Physics etc). I also took an Electronics course which was an absolute blast! I loved solving real problems and producing final products that worked! This experience made me want to shift slightly more towards applications, electronic devices, etc. What areas do you think will allow me to fulfill both the passion for fundamental physics and creative desire to produce tangible things? I am basically asking for some advice and suggestions for some research areas and fields I could look into before this fall. Much appreciated!
