Home > Press > Bentley sees big potential in microscopic particles

Abstract:
Anne Bentley, assistant professor of chemistry, received a $30,000 Faculty Start-up Award from the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation to fund her nanoparticle research. The microscopic fluorescent particles Bentley will study are similar to the materials used in television screens and have potential applications throughout the electronics industry.

Bentley sees big potential in microscopic particles

Portland, OR | Posted on October 29th, 2007

Though tens of thousands of nanoparticles could fit across a strand of hair, Bentley will attempt to corral them into thin films using a technique called electrochemical deposition. By studying the growth of the nanoparticle-containing films, Bentley hopes to generate a new method of organizing nanoparticles so that they can be used in products ranging from electronic components to sensors.

"The tiny size of my research subject by no means represents its significance," Bentley said. "What we learn through this project could greatly affect technology, and I hope that students working in my research lab gain skills that will help them in their scientific careers."

One of only eight selected by the Foundation this year, Bentley's project is titled "Synthesis of Luminescent Lanthanide Nanoparticle/Solid State Thin Film Composite Materials via Electrochemical Co-Deposition." Her five-year grant will support research across the academic terms and through summer breaks, when she hopes to integrate undergraduate research support by offering stipends to student assistants.
