Our joint analytical and computational study has recently appeared in Physical Review Letters. This work provides microscopic insight in the dynamical fluctuations observed in glass-forming liquids. The phenomenon, which was first identified in the 1990s, has been speculated by some Continue reading Revisiting (Local) Dynamical Heterogeneity in Glasses
Our long-time collaborator, Giorgio Parisi, was awarded half of this year’s Physics Nobel Prize. It’s thrilling news, which crowns more than 40 years of research efforts by Giorgio. We’re particularly excited to see our joint work on glasses highlighted by Continue reading Nobel Prize for Giorgio Parisi
A recent article by Dr. Yi Hu was highlighted in Physical Review E as an Editors’ Suggestion. It’s a well-deserved recognition for Yi’s seminal efforts toward understanding the glassy physics at play in the seminal random Lorentz gas model.
Dr. Yi Hu not only successfully defended a PhD thesis in chemistry, but also a MS thesis in computer science. Congratulations, Yi, and all the best in your next projects!
Dr. Peter K Morse has recently made a breakthrough in the memory formation in jammed hard spheres. The results can be found in Physical Review Letters.
Professor Charbonneau is slated to teach CHEM 130L: The Science of Cooking again this summer. You can now get a peek at the Syllabus. It should once again be a lot fun! If you are interested, please consider signing up Continue reading Chem 130L: Science of Cooking is Back

Congratulations to Prof. Joyjit Kundu for his recent Physical Review Letters publication, which finds evidence for vestiges of dynamical criticality in high-dimensional glasses. This work, in collaboration with Ludovic Berthier, from Université de Montpellier is part of the research efforts Continue reading Joyjit Kundu Publishes Paper
Prof. Charbonneau gets interviewed by Duke Office of Scientific Integrity, talking about the cultural shift toward routinely depositing and sharing research data. See the interview on dosi.duke.edu.
