Experimental Nuclear Physics
Apply to PD 12-1232 as follows:
For full proposals submitted via FastLane:
standard Grant Proposal Guidelines apply.
For full proposals submitted via Grants.gov:
NSF Grants.gov Application Guide; A Guide for the Preparation and Submission of NSF Applications via Grants.gov Guidelines apply

Full Proposal Target Date: October 29, 2014
Last Wednesday in October, Annually Thereafter
It is expected that proposals arrive no later than the published Physics Division target date. In exceptional cases, proposers may arrange with the program office, in advance of the target date, for a specific submission date for their proposal, normally representing a delay of at most a few days.
The experimental nuclear physics program supports research at the frontiers of nuclear science, including: properties and behavior of nuclei and nuclear matter under extreme conditions, and/or as they relate to astrophysical phenomena; the quark-gluon basis for the structure and dynamics of hadrons and nuclei; phase transitions of nuclear matter from normal nuclear density and temperature to the predicted high-temperature quark-gluon plasma; and basic interactions and fundamental symmetries. This research involves many venues, including low-energy to multi-GeV electrons and photons; intermediate-energy light ions; low-energy to relativistic heavy ions, including radioactive beams; cold and ultra-cold neutrons; as well as non-accelerator-based experiments.
The program supports university user groups executing experiments at a large number of laboratories in the United States and abroad, and a national user facility: the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory, a superconducting, heavy-ion cyclotron facility at Michigan State University. The program also supports smaller accelerator facilities, such as those at Florida State University and the University of Notre Dame. Some awards are co-funded with other programs in the Physics Division and in other divisions.
