Milestone-Proposal:Invention and development of vapor-phase axial deposition (VAD) method for mass production of high-quality optical fiber for telecommunication
Milestone Buildings Exist No, the original building was located at Shirakata Tokaimura Nakagun, Ibaraki Prefecture, 319-1106 Japan. NTT Ibaraki Electrical Communication Laboratory was at this location until 2002, and now the function is succeeded at NTT Atsugi R&D Center.
Milestone Plaque Mounting Details The plaque will be placed near the reception area at the floor entrance hall. It will be displayed in a transparent hard case.
Milestone Present Site Owner NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone) corporation
Milestone Site Access Details NTT’s receptionists are always near the plaque. The plaque will be placed near the reception area at the floor entrance hall. All visitors have free access to this hall.
Milestone Site Owner Approval Yes  +
Milestone proposal submitted true  +
Proposed Milestone IEEE Section IEEE Tokyo Section, Japan  +
Proposed Milestone Location NTT Atsugi R&D Center, 3-1 Morinosato Wakamiya, Atsugi-shi, Kanagawa, 243-0198 Japan.
Proposed Milestone Name Vapor-phase Axial Deposition Method for Mass Production of High-quality Optical Fiber, 1977-1983  +
Proposed Milestone Plaque Citation In 1977, Dr. Tatsuo Izawa of Nippon Telegr In 1977, Dr. Tatsuo Izawa of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp. (NTT) invented the vapor-phase axial deposition (VAD) method suitable for the mass production of optical fiber. NTT, Furukawa Electric, Sumitomo Electric, and Fujikura collaboratively investigated the fabrication process. The technology successfully shifted from research and development to commercialization. The VAD method contributed greatly to the construction of optical-fiber networks. he construction of optical-fiber networks.
Proposed Milestone Year 1977-1983  +
