First, I would not share any additional details in a public forum.
Second, you are going to want to chose a patent attorney with the relevant technical background. I am not sure whether that is physics or material sciences. There are many patent attorneys with Ph.D. level of education in the sciences. That may be your best choice for this application.
As you can select a patent attorney to help you that does not live in your state, you may want to do some searching for patents in your general space. You can use free search tools and some tips from https://bit.ly/Patent__Searching .
If you see that a particular firm has handled a number of inventions that are addressing some of the issues that you are working with, then you may want to reach out to the attorney doing that work. (Public PAIR will get you the attorney name even if not on the front of the issued patents).
Keep in mind that if they are doing something really close to what you are doing, then they may not be able help you as it will be a conflict with their current client.
I hope that this helps.

A: I agree with Mr. Flynn. You will need to understand the patent process before you engage a lawyer otherwise you will be paying for a lot of time doing things you could have done. Lawyers are at the end of the patent process. https://www.dummies.com/education/politics-government/patents-copyrights-trademarks-for-dummies-cheat-sheet/
This may be patentable subject matter. But to pass the patent examination process, your ideas will have to be sufficiently novel and non-obvious. You will also need to provide enough supporting detail to show that you are in "possession of the invention."
Consider doing some preliminary research on https://patents.google.com/ . If you type in various key words corresponding to your idea, Google will fish up various patents and patent applications that relate to the key words. This will give you an idea about what the patent examiners will see when they start to research your patent.
If you see many "hits" that are very close, this can be a negative sign. Alternatively, if your "hits" tend to be a bit "off-target", this can be a good sign.
I agree with the others that you should not post further details of your ideas online here or in any other public media, as this would be considered to be a "publication" that can damage your patent rights.
