Nikon’s corporate history began in 1917 with the manufacturing of optical glass starting the following year. Since then, users' stringent demands and Nikon's uncompromising attitude toward manufacturing have always led the drive to deliver products of unparalleled quality. This spirit has uninterruptedly been handed down in Nikon.
In every Nikon product there is an optical lens, from cameras to IC/LCD steppers and scanners, from microscopes to telescopes.
In order to foster innovation, each division’s research and development is organized around a common platform sharing its basic technologies: The Nikon Core Technology Center, focusing opto-electronics and precision technologies. For more about Nikon’s R&D activities, please visit here.
