I am currently working in a telecom R&D company.But I am very much interested towards quantum mechanics domain of physics. But currently I don't have the scope of doing anything about it. I need to support my family also so a job with good scale also important. But If I get any fellowship which can give me money I can do this R&D job in quantum mechanics domain with interest. Currently I just watch the youtube video tutorials to learn quantum mechanics from University of Yale and Univ of Stanford and wherever its applicable. I have following questions,
- Is it possible to get some achievement without any real lab work in this domain? Means like doing theoretically?
- Is there any institute which encourage such type of research with fare amount of pay?
- Although I have good knowledge in physics and Mathematics due to financial condition I could not went into research domain in this area and I joined the different company. I am 29yrs old now. Is it a good idea to switch into this domain of research at this age?
