Collaboration between theorists and experimentalists is essential and can be a very powerful way for advancing scientific discoveries and technological innovations. A succesful and productive collaboration between theorists and experimentalists will also help to strengthen the overall research environemnt in the whole physics community. Besids, many major breakthroughs in science take place at the intersections of disciplines. This is particular so in the modern time due to the increasing complexity of problems. Recongnizing its importantce, NCTS will support and act as a platform for promoting the interaction and collaboration between theorists and experimentalists, as well as interdisciplinary collaboration.
Experimental Collaboration Program
The Experimental Collaboration Program (ECP) shall be led by leading experimentalists and three ECP groups have been selected for 2017-2018 as shown below.
|E1||Quantum Optics and Quantum Manipulation of Ultracold Atoms||Ying-Cheng Chen (IAMS)||Iris Peng|
|E2||Light Dark Matter and Neutrinos||Cheng-Pang Liu (NDHU), Henry T. Wong (AS)||Hsun-Ying Chiu|
|E3||LHC Experimental/Theoretical Exploration||Kingman Cheung (NTHU), Jennifer Hsu (NTHU)||Candie Chiu|
The interdisciplinary program (IDP) shall be led by PI in different research fields, and three IDP groups have been identified for the operation in 2017-2018
|I1||Multiscale studies for complex materials, catalysts, and biological systems – theoretical and computational approaches, and experimental stimulus||Jer-Lai Kuo (AS)||Sherry Pang|
|I2||Geometry, Topology and String Theory||
|I3||Complex Systems and Mathematical Biology||Lee-Wei Yang (NTHU)||Hsun-Ying Chiu|
The Seed program (Seed) is to promote some smaller but promising subfields, which may grow in the future.
|Seed1||Quantum Transport||Yu-Chang Chen (NCTU)||Renne Ho|
|Seed2||Gravitional Wave and Numerical Gravity||Feng-Li Lin (NTNU)||Hsun-Ying Chiu|
|Seed3||Parton Distribution Functions from Lattice QCD||David Lin (NCTU)||Hsun-Ying Chiu|
|Seed4||Non-equilibrium Quantum Phenomena||Chung-Hsien Chou (NCKU)||Yi-Wen Fu|
