I am going to be applying to grad schools in the coming months, and plan to apply to many schools. I'm looking for programs in quantum computation, quantum information, quantum optics, etc... (related research often falls under many different names). These programs generally are categorized in AMO (Atomic, Molecular, and Optics). I have been looking at programs for a while now, and have found quite a lot of suitable programs. My reason for posting is that I'd like to know about any other that I may have not come across yet. Because related research in this field often falls under different categories than AMO, I want to make sure I have as seen as many programs as possible. For example, I work at a research lab right now, and a researcher who works in quantum computing is applying to RIT for a Ph.D in nanoscale engineering because it is obviously applicable. Schools I have seen and will most likely apply to: University of Rochester (1st choice as of right now) Cornell University Stony Brook University SUNY Albany (Safety - my application is very good, but I haven't yet taken the PGRE and they do not require it) MIT & Harvard (why not?) Northeastern Dartmouth University of Wisconsin Madison University of Maryland College Park Are there any other graduate programs that people would suggest for programs in quantum information/quantum optics or related fields? I should note that I'd like to stay in the Northeast, but this is not necessarily a requirement.
