Helping nuclear industry store spent fuel rods

Abstract:
Notably, Singh said he has kept $1 from his salary each year, and has his company donate the rest to his charitable foundation. Singh's foundation has donated $20 million to his alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania's School of Applied Sciences and Engineering, to create the Krishna P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology. It was the largest gift in the history of the engineering school, where he got his doctorate.

Q: What prompted you to make the donation to Penn?

A: Today, it's a new century, and I firmly believe that America's future lies in staying ahead in the technology race. The university will play a leading role in that.
