    Hey everyone!

    Im currently an MSc student in laser physics. My work focuses on high power thulium fibre lasers. I would like to do my PhD overseas, in the same field (not necessaily a similar topic). So I have browsed around earlier rather than later and doing my PhD overseas is definitely appealing. Potential places which so far appeal to me, are the institute of optics in Rochester, NY or some where in Asia (think Japan).

    Does anyone have any personal knowledge regarding these two places with regard to doing graduate education there? Im not interested in getting a shiny name on my CV, I want a place where I can get a solid education. Where I study now is also great, but ive been here since undergrad, some variety would be good!
