Focused Research Hubs in Theoretical Physics
NSF 20-605
https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2020/nsf20605/nsf20605.htm

The specific hub topics for this solicitation are:

1. Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (TAMOP) - The TAMOP focused research hub will support theoretical work to advance theoretical AMO physics and lead in motivating and explaining new experimental work in AMO and other areas of science within the purview of the Division of Physics.

2. Quantum Information Science (QIS)  - The QIS focused research hub will support theoretical work to explore quantum applications that will push the frontiers of quantum-based information, transmission, and manipulation within the purview of the Division of Physics. This activity will advance the goals of the “Quantum Leap”, one of the NSF 10 Big Ideas for Future NSF Investment.

3. Theoretical Nuclear Physics (TNP)  - The TNP focused research hub will support theoretical work in the area of Models and Simulations for Nuclear Astrophysics relevant to research within the purview of the Division of Physics. This activity will advance the goals of the “Windows on the Universe”, one of the NSF 10 Big Ideas for Future NSF Investment.
