Here we introduce NTT research centers in specific fields.
The Innovative Photonic Network Center (IPC) aims to establish the base technologies toward a scalable petabit-class optical network that can accommodate future increases in traffic driven by the expansion of cloud services and spread of smartphones.
The Nanophotonics Center utilizes nanophotonics technology to conduct innovative research with the aim of establishing large-scale photonic integration technology that integrates optical devices with various functions in large numbers at high density, and reducing energy consumption of photonic information processing to the absolute minimum.
The Research Center for Theoretical Quantum Physics sees the potential for quantum information science as it relates to computation, measurement, and communication. The Center will develop a deeper understanding of physical systems determined by strong quantum mechanical correlation, and by engaging in fundamental interpretation of quantum physics, will identify trends in new technology from various perspectives.
BMC promotes basic and applied research such as biocompatible new materials, biosensing technology, medical care and behavioral information analysis technology, and co-innovation with partners.
The NTT Smart Data Science Center conducts R&D on practical data analysis and AI technology for value creation from data based on actual problems.
Our mission is to formulate strategies and research plans so we can promote the Digital Twin Computing (DTC) concept, promote societal implementation by integrating technologies and services, conduct research and development into key technologies, and build a collaborative system with external partners aimed at academic research, technology development, and social implementation.
The NTT-IFM aims to become one of the top international research institutes for mathematics. Its main objective is to challenge fundamental problems in mathematics by exploring new and hidden theoretical frameworks while contributing to NTT research topics by proposing new approaches based on advanced mathematics.
