Undergraduate Research to Graduate Reasearch and More

  1. Aug 8, 2009 #1
    Hello,

    Let's say that my undergrad institution does not have any groups working in experimental AMO, but does have some theoretical AMO research going on. I plan to go to grad school for experimental AMO. Would I be better off working in the theoretical group, or working with an experimental CM group?

    Also, I want to do some work with BEC in my graduate career. I was looking at this site:

    http://www.uibk.ac.at/exphys/ultracold/atomtraps.html

    and it seems to me that many groups are working in this field. I know of some more groups that aren't even on that list. I'm sure by the time I get to grad school, there will be even more groups in the field. This may be a naive question, but is it possible for a field to get watered down because too many people are in the field?

    Also, does anybody know of any industry groups that are working with BEC?
