Dr. John Anthony, who is a CAER faculty associate from the UK Department of Chemistry, has found recent acclaim. He was awarded the Hubbard Professorship in Chemistry, which is a departmental endowment. Then on March 4th he was approved for a University Research Professorship by the UK Board of Trustees. The designation carries a $35,000 award for one year.
Lastly, he also recently published an article in Nature Materials, one of the highest-impact journals in materials science. The article is entitled “Contact-induced crystallinity for high-performance soluble acene-based transistors and circuits” and has multiple co-authors from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and The Pennsylvania State University. The article describes a low-cost way to mass produce large arrays of organic electronic transistors on polymer sheets for a range of applications including “intelligent paper.”
Anthony, who is also the Gill Professor of Chemistry, focuses on organic synthesis and materials chemistry. He came to UK in 1996 after performing postdoctoral work at the University of California at Los Angeles, where he also earned his doctorate.
