Physicists are usually employed in research and development laboratories in industry, private institutions, and government. As we enter a new century, the physicist will normally be working as a part of a team of scientists and engineers in such research fields as energy, superconductivity, low temperature, optics, atomic and nuclear phenomena, secondary teacher certification, radiation, and computers. A physics degree is also excellent background for positions or further education in such fields as medicine, law, business administration, and engineering.
