NFO-14 Logo Designed by Yuriko Masuda
NFO-14 logo represents “Diamond Fuji” and the reflection at the surface of a lake. “Diamond Fuji” is the great scenery that the sun is overlapped on the summit of Mt. Fuji at sunrise or sunset. It looks like photon localization at the apex of a probe tip. The reflection is a mirror image of the localized photons.
