What I would do is search for applied mathematics programs and look at what the research faculty are doing at that program (skim a few papers) and see if it is work that would excite you. Especially coming from a master’s, the majority of work will be in your dissertation. There definitely are interdisciplinary programs (though a lot of them are at top ranked schools, and you want matches/safeties as well). I don’t know much about physics in particular, but combing the sites of applied programs helped me find a range of schools in optimization to apply to this past year!

Hopefully some of it can be applied to your PhD degree and you will more quickly move toward the dissertation/research phase of your PhD. Potential dissertation advisors are even more important as you consider PhD programs coming from a master’s than a bachelors.
I don’t know about the topics you’re interested in, in particular. I just know that for optimization as well I had to comb through a lot of department websites to find the ones that were working in it. I also searched journals that were related to optimization, and looked at where the authors of articles I liked worked.
