Message from the Director

 We are deeply grateful for your interest and support with respect to our research activities.
 The three research areas at NTT-BRL, namely Materials Science, Physical Science, and Optical Science, are undertaking work designed to contribute to the success of NTT's business and promote advances in science that will ultimately benefit all mankind.
 A fundamental goal of these research activities is to improve global competitiveness. Therefore, BRL is collaborating with many universities and research institutes throughout the world as well as with other NTT laboratories. BRL organizes international conferences related to quantum physics and also holds a "Science Plaza" to enhance public understanding of our activities and ensure a frank exchange of opinions. Moreover, one of our missions is the education of young researchers and we sponsor the biennial "BRL School", which boasts distinguished researchers as lecturers. In November 2007, thirty-five Ph.D. students and young researchers from universities and institutes in 12 countries participated in the BRL School. We hope that this endeavor will encourage research and contribute to its future growth.
 It gives us immense pleasure to fulfill our mission of being an open laboratory in this way, and to disseminate our research output worldwide. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
