Deliver an international venue for research on the physics of nuclei during an era of experimental investigations on rare isotopes.
Peking University, Beijing, China
Provide travel and local support for visits of U.S.-based physicists to CUSTIPEN
Provide local support for China-based physicists at CUSTIPEN
The China-U.S. Theory Institute for Physics with Exotic Nuclei (CUSTIPEN) has been established in order to facilitate collaborations between U.S. and Chinese scientists whose main research thrust is in the area of the physics of nuclei. U.S. participation in CUSTIPEN is in the form of travel grants and subsistence grants to those individuals who are interested in collaborating with Chinese scientists. CUSTIPEN’s purview is in the area of physics of or with exotic nuclei, including nuclear structure and reaction theory, nuclear astrophysics, and tests of the standard model using exotic nuclei. While CUSTIPEN primarily focuses on theory collaborations, experimentalists with theoretical collaborators in China are also encouraged to apply.
