 National Institute of Information and Communications Technology:
NICT was established in April 2004 as an incorporated administrative agency to carry out research and development in the field of information and communications technology. The agency is based in Tokyo and led by Dr. Hideo Miyahara, president.
 Non-linear optical effects:
Interactions between light and matter which occur when extremely powerful light passes through fiber optic lines or other materials. The challenge in this instance is a form of what is called self-phase modulation, in which the phase of the light wave changes over an interval in response to its intensity.
 Nonlinear compensation technology:
A technology making it possible to counteract the complex waveform distortion that accumulates from the nonlinear effects occurring at every point on a long-distance fiber-optic line.
 Circuit stages:
In nonlinear compensation technology, because the linear distortion and nonlinear distortion tend to gradually compensate for each other over long-distance transmission lines, the same circuit must be designed so that it has multiple stages of serial connections.
