I have a BA in physics from a top ten university in the united states and I had an ok GPA and great research experience. Right now I am conducting research at a national lab that is more chemistry/materials science based. I graduated in 2010 so I would be entering a PhD program in the fall of 2012. Although I enjoyed my undergraduate education in physics, I was never completely excited about being a physicist and I am finding myself more excited about physical chemistry/materials science & engineering research (specifically, as applied to renewable energy technologies), since that that is what I am working on right now. Unfortunately, I didnt take any chemistry courses in college. I have a solid understanding of QM and I have picked up a good bit of chemistry from my research. My question is this: Is there anyone out there who has an undergraduate degree in physics and has successfully pursued a career in physical chemistry/materials science & engineering/chemical engineering? If you do then any information regarding making that transition would be very helpful.
