I'm near the end of sophomore year at undergrad as a physics major, and recently, my biggest dream job became combining the two fields I love the most: Physics and Technology. I love technology. I 'm always updated on the newest microprocessor chips and tech news. I go on engadget and other tech review websites multiple times a day. And I find the quantum level microprocessors so fascinating. My question is how much do companies like Intel, Samsung, Qualcomm, etc hire physicists focused on Quantum Physics/Solid State Physics/Microprocessor/Computer Science to develop new microprocessors??? Or do they usually just only hire engineers?
