Jaclyn Sprenger received her B.S. in Chemistry with honors from Washington State University in 2012. As an undergraduate, Jaclyn interned with the Washington State Patrol Crime Laboratory in the trace evidence/firearms divisions. Her honors thesis research focused on the synthesis of novel nitrogen containing ligands for f-block separation with the intention of recycling nuclear waste.
Jaclyn is a second year Ph.D. candidate at the University of Colorado – Boulder in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. She is a member of the Steven George Research Group and collaborates closely with the Victor Bright Research Group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Her current research focuses on the application of Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and Molecular Layer Deposition (MLD) for material properties enhancement and stabilization. Additionally, she is studying the mechanism of low temperature GaN deposition.
Her extracurricular interests include rock-climbing, snowboarding, hiking, motorcycling, and enjoying the beauty of Colorado.
- Enhancement of Material Properties using Atomic and Molecular Layer Deposition
- Stabilization of Silicon Nanoparticle Anode Material with Molecular Layer Deposition
- Low Temperature Atomic Layer Deposition of GaN by Electron Stimulated Desorption
