Scientists from the Cracking the Glass collaboration have found a way to see molecular re-arrangements in deeply supercooled liquids, which ordinarily can take centuries or even millennia. Along the way, they have also found new physical properties of “aged” supercooled liquids and glasses.
Candès, who holds the Barnum-Simons Chair in Mathematics and Statistics at Stanford University, was named a 2017 MacArthur Fellow for "exploring the limits of signal recovery and matrix completion from incomplete data sets with implications for high-impact applications in multiple fields."
