"Good" schools in experimental condensed matter

Postby arnab » Sun Sep 17, 2017 9:21 pm

Hi everyone.

I wanted to know some "good"(not the absolute best) universities in the US in the branch of experimental condensed matter, especially in the field of TMDC/Graphene and other 2-D materials, optical properties and all. It's just that few of the papers I have come across are by professors in places such like MIT/Caltech etc. or Europe. So it would be great if you could tell me a few places which are not so selective in their graduate admissions and at the same time have decent groups in the aforementioned topics. I don't mind experimental groups that work on phase transitions(e.g frustrated magnetism) and non-fermi liquid behaviour either.

Thanks!

Thanks, but it's a real chore to visit each of these universities and find good groups in the specific areas I have mentioned, since they are ranked in the more general category of condensed matter. If someone has a more personal view on this, please help me out.

I hope this isn't too harsh/snarky, but I write this with good intentions. To succeed as a graduate student, you are going to need to do your own research and find information specific for you. Only you can do this for yourself. Whether it's finding the right graduate program, or finding the troubleshooting solution for your code, or determining what went wrong in your experiment's protocol etc. the answers aren't just going to be provided for you. Think of this phase of applying to grad school where you need to basically do a "literature review" of the graduate programs to be similar to the kind of scientific work you will excel at in graduate school.

Thank you. I am well aware of that, I made this post initially to gain more input, I am definitely not entirely relying on this platform to give me the answers I need.
