2 Office of Nuclear Physics Organization Physics Research Division I. DOE/NP Office (research div org chart) (Jan. 2013)

3 I. DOE/NP Office (cont.) Changes in personnel: Recent Arrivals: Kyungseon Joo (Conn.) Detailee (currently NP Comp. review) Kawthar Haifdi (ANL)Detailee Departures: Helmut Marsiskemoved to HEP late Apr Cathy Slaughterto retire end May 2013 t.b.a.: Research Division Director closed; in prep. Medium Energy Program Managerposition to be advertised, moderately near future usajobs.com 3

4 II. Funding DOE/NP funding levels have been challenging in recent years. Here is the President’s Request for NP and the total allocated NP funding since FY 2009 (K$): Category FY 2009 FY 2010 FY 2011 FY 2012 FY 2013 FY 2014 PReq: Alloc.: t.b.d. Evidently we departed from a strong growth scenario during FY 2010 to FY NP total funding decreased significantly in FY 2012  FY

5 II. Funding (cont.) ME research funding, which is of greatest interest to this audience, has recently been in the range ~ M$. The two main components are research funding for national lab groups and university groups. These are shown below for the period FY 2009 – FY 2012 (K$): Category FY 2009 FY 2010 FY 2011 FY 2012 FY 2013 labs: t.b.d. univs: “ NP research support decreased in FY 2012 due to a ~ flat overall NP budget and increasing commitments elsewhere in the program. Approx. half of the univ. reduction was due to grants ending; the remainder was achieved through uniform recommended budget limits relative to FY 2011 for existing research grants, carryover, and no new starts. Some serious problems were addressed through supplemental funding. Having met the MENP research budget constraints in FY 2012, fortunately no additional reduction in university grant base funding relative to FY 2012 was necessary in FY

6 III. Some positive developments Early career awards This program is intended to address the difficulty new investigators have in getting funding for a new grant (8 NP awards, 2 MENP related) Mike Williams (MIT) Gluonic Excitations in Mesons GlueX detector and PID, data analysis algorithms and software. William Detmold (MIT) (NP Theory) From Quarks to the Cosmos: Ab Initio Studies in Nuclear Physics NN and NNN, [..]Y nuclear forces from LQCD: Apps. JLAB, light nuclei and hypernuclei, nuclear astrophysics (n stars) Recall 2012 (7 NP awards, 1 MENP) Silviu Covrig (TJNAF) Computational Fluid Dynamics Facility to Support Targets for the 12 GeV Program at Jefferson Laboratory 6

7 LQCD NP SciDAC-3 Projects (8/2012 – 8/2017) The 3 main areas of NP (4 with FIs added). (NP = lead office) 7 CalLatNUCLEI III. Some positive developments (cont.) LQCD (NP) PD Frithjof Karsch (BNL) co-PD science David Richards (JLAB) NUCLEI PD Joe Carlson (LANL) co-PD sci. Witek Nazarewicz (U.Tenn/ORNL) CalLat PD Wick Haxton (LBNL/UCB) co-PD sci. Tom Luu (LLNL  Bonn) 5-year multisite comp. NP projects, esp. postdoc and g.s. support. Tot. 5-year funding $23M: NP $10M, ASCR $10M, NNSA $3M. What can they do for JLAB?

8 MENP from LQCD e.g. (JLAB) What strongly interacting q&qbar&g mesons (q-qbar, q-qbar-g, …) does QCD predict that JLAB experiments will produce after the ~ 0.3G$ 12 GeV upgrade? {incl. exotic mesons} Lattice QCD results: Spectrum of I=0 light mesons, including exotics, expected to be seen at JLAB (GlueX, 12 GeV upgrade). J.J.Dudek et al, Phys.Rev. D83 (2011) M, q.nos.; just what we need to know! Future phys m u,d, strong decays. MC: 1) ask the right questions, 2) stomp on it

9 IV. NP Comparative Review and MENP The MENP review is June 2013, Gaithersburg Marriott Washingtonian Center. Your POC for the review is Kyungseon Joo (detailee at DOE/NP), Updated review information (charge letters, agenda/schedule, any changes may be found at the URL Most talks (1-2 PIs) are 30 mins ( = 20 mins talk + 10 mins discussion). 44 presentations scheduled, from 6 natl. lab. groups and 38 university groups. Your briefing package should already be uploaded. Your MENP presentation should be ed to K. Joo at DOE on or before 6 June
