The Current (UC-Santa Barbara, CA, (Sept. 14) --  A new program enables visiting scientists to return to the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics to work together again in small groups. “Those extra two weeks at the KITP significantly strengthened our collaborations and gave us the time and space to initiate new synergistic group efforts,” said Karin Dahmen, a professor of condensed matter physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. “Not only did the program provide a unique opportunity to finish discussions and joint work that we had started at the KITP, it also helped us think up new ideas and design new projects that could lead to groundbreaking larger research projects for the next decade or longer.”
