Research Activities

Scientific activities are carried out by center scientific staffs, by

division initiatives (working group, topics program) and

by a number of focus groups.

Attract internationally well known scientists to come to give lectures

The division pays much emphasis on guiding and training our

students and postdocs to conduct researches competitive world wide

by supporting some of them to attend well known international

schools and conferences.

Focus groups

1. AMO: Atomic Molecular Optical Physics, Coordinator: Daw-Wei Wang (NTHU and NCTS)

2. Bio: Complexity and Life, Coordinator: Chi-Lun Lee (NCU), Chun-Chung Chen (NCTS)

3. CMR: Computational Material Research, Coordinator: Chih-Kai Yang (NCU/National Chengchi University)

4.CPCS: Critical Phenomena and Complex Systems, Coordinator: Ming-Chia Wu (NCU and AS)

5.CPA: Cosmology and Particle Asrophysics, Coordinator: Chao-Qiang Geng (NTHU)

Research areas lead by Center Scientists and Focus Groups

Bio-Physics, Condensed Matter, Computational Physics, Nuclear, Particle Physics, Field,

String, Quantum Information, AMO, Cosmology, Astrophysics and Gravity

12 Focus Groups in 2012. (Removed one on Plasma Physics FG due to lack of activities)

New FG in 2013: A new Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (TCC FG)

A new Computing Platform for Strong Coupling System (CPSCS FG)

Will merge into six thematic areas:

Quantum Matter, AMO&QIS (AMO,QIS),

Novel Materials (CPC, NMSCP),

Bio and Soft Matter Physics (Bio, CPCS),

Computational Sciences (MPSCS, TCC, CPSCS),

Cosmology, Astrophysics & Gravity (CPA, GRA),

Nuclear, Particle, Fields & String (LQCD, LHC, String)


Weekly seminars at NTHU,NCTU, NCU, NTU, CYCU, NCKU

Conferences and workshops: on the average 60.

Among them about 10 schools aiming at students and postdocs


Each year send about 25 students and postdocs to international

conferences and schools.

Awards by NCTS Physics Division

The division puts much emphasis on nurturing young theoretical

physicists in Taiwan by awarding their efforts in different ways.

Outstanding Young Researcher ward

to young faculties in universities.

This year the division also established a new award for

Best Research Paper for postdoctoral research fellows

encouraging postdocs to carry out forefront researches.
