Patrick Charbonneau and his collaborators have taken another crack at understanding the nature of glass. Their latest simulations show that a key assumption of theoretical chemists and physicists to explain the molecular structure of glass is wrong (see PNAS and a Duke research report).
Congratulations to Diana Fusco, who was granted the Paul M. Gross merit fellowship for the Spring 2013.
Congratulations to Prof. Charbonneau, who received a mention for teaching excellence for the Spring 2012’s Chem 166 from Duke’s Dean of Arts and Science and Dean of Academic Affairs.
Congratulations to Timothy Barnum, a summer researcher in the Charbonneau group, who won the Chemistry REU presentation award.
