Randomizer, if you're an experimentalist in nonlinear optics with an interest in quantum effects in microcavities, then there are probably quite a few post-doc positions looking for you. It's kind of a post-doc's market in this field right now. And physics post-docs are pretty good, really. No security, since contracts are usually two or three years at most. But the pay is usually decent, and one is usually treated with respect as a junior scientist, rather than as a zombie slave.
You can always go do something else again after.
Listen carefully because some of your options may have changed.

What drew you into this field? - A number of factors:
1) Law runs in the family - my father and sister are legal professionals
3) I had an engineering degree and was going to law school so patent law was an obvious choice.
4) I liked the idea of working in an area of the law that most lawyers don't understand or want anything to do with. It gives you cult status.
5) I liked the idea of working with innovative inventions and being on the cutting edge of technology in some sense.
Be careful what you pretend to be because you are what you pretend to be.
