Promoting the role of Physics in research, education, industry and the community
Think that studying physics at university limits you to a career in research? Think again. Your physics training gets you further than you think.
Explore the different career pathways physics could possibly lead you on by reading the career profiles of physics graduates. We feature a different physics graduate each month in our monthly AIP newsletter bulletin. Some are also featured in our quarterly Australian Physics magazine.
“I am in the gem industry, or more specifically, the diamond industry. A few years ago, I started a couple of businesses: one making instruments for gemmologists and another running a diamond laboratory specialising in certifying Argyle origin of pink and violet diamonds,” says John Chapman
“Physics has played a role in both those enterprises as they involve the light spectrum from ultraviolet to infrared,” he says.Read more about how John is using optics to see diamonds more clearly.
