NSF Research Areas

Slide image:
The NSF logo centered among images representing twelve NSF research areas:

  • Astronomy (photo of Very Large Array radio telescopes)
  • Biology (illustration of a cross-section of a silhouetted human head showing the brain)
  • Computing (computer simulation showing the action of the enzyme cellulase on cellulose)
  • Earth & Environment (photo of a breaking wave)
  • Engineering (photo showing how a fluorescent dye injected into a tank of stirred liquid creates a pattern that resembles a green apple)
  • Education (photo of a girl participating in a science demonstration)
  • Materials (photomicrograph, imaged between crossed polarizers, of the liquid crystal banana phase named B1)
  • Mathematics (computer-generated image of E8 root system consisting of 240 vectors in an 8-dimensional space)
  • Nano (still from an animation depicting two motorized nanocars)
  • People & Society (illustration showing the silhouette of a young child on hands and knees, surrounded by technological items, including a computer, video game controller and television)
  • Physics (false-color image showing the emergence of a Bose-Einstein condensate, or BEC)
  • Polar (photo of a huge iceberg)
