Physics provides research opportunities in many subfields of physics, including
- applied physics: this effort has spawned a number of spin-off companies.
- medical physics: be involved in a broad range of medical physics research in the areas of radiation therapy, medical imaging, biomedical optics and radiation biophysics.
- biophysics: the application of quantitative principles and methods to biological systems.
- nuclear and particle physics: the aim of subatomic physics is to understand matter and the fundamental forces in the universe and ultimately form a Theory of Everything.
- astronomy and astrophysics: study stars, galaxies, the material in between, and the Universe as a whole.
- atomic, molecular, and optical physics: this field is rapidly expanding and serves as the basis for many modern technological innovations.
- condensed matter physics is concerned with understanding and exploiting the properties of solids and liquids and the large area that this covers makes it the largest field of contemporary physics.
- theoretical physics: Gravity and Relativity, String Theory, High Energy Physics, and Condensed Matter Theory, to Quantum Information and Biophysics
