Prof. Patrick Charbonneau, who has appointments in both Chemistry and Physics at Duke, spent three weeks in May at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara.  While at the Kavli Institute, Charbonneau attended the program on "The Physics of Glasses: Relating Metallic Glasses to Molecular, Polymeric and Oxide Glasses."  Prof. Charbonneau gave a seminar on "How Hard Is It To Form A Glass? Insights From Beyond 3D." The slides and video for his seminar can be seen at the Kavli institute's webpage here. Former Duke undergrad Corey O'Hern (now faculty at Yale) was also attending.
