Roth, Laura M.; O'Fallon, Nancy M.
This booklet presents information about career opportunities for women in physics. Included are summaries of research areas in physics (optical physics, solid-state physics, materials science, nuclear physics, high-energy physics, astrophysics, cryogenics, plasma physics, biophysics, atmospheric physics) and differences between theory and experiment and between basic and applied research. Also included are discussions of job opportunities (focusing on those related to level of training), how to prepare for a career in physics, the current job situation, job discrimination, and marriage and a career. Brief profiles of 11 female physicists are also provided. (JN)
