It doesn't look like there's a whole lot of action in this group lately, but I figured that I would toss out a question. Who here works (or did work) in physics?

I'm a graduate student in the physics, working on an experiment to measure the CMB polarization. Actually, two such experiments: one that is nearly finished and one that will soon start taking data.

I started out as a physicist working on the particle environment in near-Earth space, moved on to radiation effects in spacecraft systems. Now I'm a systems engineer leading spacecraft missions. Currently, I 'm starting up a new version of the Solar Probe mission to do repeated close flybys of the Sun.

I'm a second-year grad student in physics at Boston University. I'm on track to go into lattice QCD, which makes me part of the particle theory group (officially, as of earlier this fall). Currently the only project I have involves numerical simulations related to the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, and is just in the very first stages. I should be joining in lattice meetings starting in January.

I am a grad student in quantum gravity and cosmology! Right now I am studying potentially phenomenological aspects of quantum gravity.

Cool! Have you considered applying the "Hawking radiation" idea to cosmological horizons?

Hi guys,

I am new to this LibraryThing & i find it amazing :D

I am an undergrad physics student

nice to meet you

A working physicist since 1968. First for the US Navy, now for a forensic engineering firm. Physics has been the key to common sense, although I've often heard it said, "Common Sense Isn't."

I just finished my BS in Physics and am working on getting into Graduate School. So physicist in training.... here....

I studied Physics at UCLA, UC Santa Cruz, and San Diego State. After doing some work in biomedical physics (ultrasound studies of bone, mammography studies using MCNP - Monte Carlo Neutron Photon), I got sucked into that great maw of telecommunications - cell phone network design and maintenance (the U.S. was a relative laggard compared to Asia and Europe). But Physics is the greatest science ever, and I'm sorry I can only appreciate it now from the grandstands.
I do read a lot in it and math, and have been very impressed lately with Joel Primack's View from the Center of the Universe, Quantum Reality, Perfect Rigor, and The Poincare Conjecture, all of which I highly recommend.
P.S. And if you're interested in information theory and/or entropy, there's nothing better than Grammatical Man, which came out in the 1980's.

Working physicist. Graduated Thiel College, 1968. Twenty years with the U.S. Navy as a research physicist designing and building electro-optical missile guidance systems, patent on the DSMAC unit in Tomahawk

Twenty-seven years now doing accident reconstruction. Wide range of reading interests including science fiction.
