Activities of the Japanese optical industry are reknown throughout the world because of that country's optical products such as cameras, binoculars, and more recently, optical fibers and semiconductor lasers. However, Japanese activities in optical research are not as well known.
This article has been prepared to introduce some recent activities of Japanese optical research in various fields in preparation for ICO-13 which will be held in Sapporo, Japan next August. Names of some organizations are expressed in abbreviated form for convenience. A list of the full names can be found in the box elsewhere in this article.
