Home > Press > American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev Receives $3 Million Pledge for New Quantum Nanotechnology Facility

Abstract:
American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (AABGU) just received a $3 million pledge from long-time AABGU supporter and National Vice President Ruth Flinkman-Marandy and Ben Marandy. This generous donation will support a new atom chip and quantum optics research and development facility at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) in Beer-Sheva, Israel.

American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev Receives $3 Million Pledge for New Quantum Nanotechnology Facility

Los Angeles, CA | Posted on April 18th, 2012

The Atom Chip Lab is the first of its kind in Israel. Its new facility will provide the necessary technology to pursue world-class scientific investigation, as well as train promising young researchers. It will contain advanced nanotechnology research equipment, including sophisticated optics and lasers, high level computing capabilities and complex electronics.

Atom chips are used in the construction of "atomic clocks" which are fundamental to the extremely high precision guidance systems required for satellites, missiles and other vital homeland security products. Dr. Ron Folman of the Department of Physics will head the new facility.

The Flinkmans were early supporters of the nanotechnology research initiative at BGU. "I am so proud to continue to help provide the resources for cutting-edge research and training," explains Ruth Flinkman-Marandy. "With this level of research and development taking place, BGU will attract great minds to live in the Negev and will be a magnet for high-tech companies that will leverage University resources."

In 2010, BGU dedicated the Stan and Ruth Elaine Flinkman Microscopy Wing in the state-of-the-art Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology. Ruth also contributed significantly to student scholarships and several other programs at BGU. She is currently the campaign chair for the AABGU Southwest Region headquartered in Los Angeles.

"AABGU is extremely grateful for the ongoing dedication and support of Ruth Flinkman-Marandy, who has an extraordinary vision for the use of quantum nanotechnology research, especially as it pertains to the future security of Israel," explains Doron Krakow, executive vice president of AABGU. "With Ruth's and Ben's help, BGU will improve its ability to attract the world's best and brightest researchers."
