Questions about photonics?

  1. Apr 14, 2005 #1

    I'm new to this site and (forgive my lazy ass) too impatient to browse this expanse of forums to answer the following question myself:

    in which category should I post questions about photonics?

    It's a bit hard to see for myself, as my question involve totally different things: atmospheric optics seem to situate itself best in the 'Earth' forum, whereas questions about photons specifically are more like quantum mechanics. However, photonics is both, and it's hard to reduce it to one of its associated fields.

    Since photons are accounted for by the QFT,post them in the Quantum Physics forum.
