Ignazio Porro - Ignazio Porro's primary contribution to optics was an innovative prism image erecting system that is commonly used in binoculars and stereomicroscopes, though he also invented and improved a number of other scientific instruments. A great deal of skill and effort was still needed to fashion the telescopes, microscopes, or opaque projectors described. It is claimed that, with one of tubes, a high potential transformer can be employed direct in X-ray work without the need for any valve tube or other " rectifying " device. Tycho Brahe - Tycho Brahe was a Danish astronomer who made the most accurate observations possible without the aid of a telescope. According to the tenet, a beam of light traveling between two points will follow the path that takes the shortest amount of time to complete.

Watson and Son[ edit ] William Watson c. The established Prior Monocular Dissecting Microscope was widely supplied for educational use. History[ edit ] Inamateur photographer Norman W. Hooke's interest in microscopy and astronomy is exemplified by the treatise Micrographia, his best known work on optical microscopy, and a volume on comets, Cometa detailing his close observation of the comets occurring in and As a journalist, scientist, inventor, statesmen, philosopher, musician, and economist, Benjamin Franklin can be thought of as a colonial Renaissance man. Marvin Lee Minsky Present - While at Harvard University, Marvin Minsky made his primary contribution to the field of optics by inventing the confocal scanning microscope.

It was in De subtilitate libri that Cardano made his primary contribution to optics. The efforts of Alhazen resulted in over one hundred works, the most famous of which was Kitab-al-Manadhirn, rendered into Latin in the Middle Ages. Jacques Babinet - Jacques Babinet was a French physicist, mathematician, and astronomer born in Lusignan, who is most famous for his contributions to optics. He was also fascinated by birds and flying and drew designs of fantastic flying machines. Light traveling in a straight line into the glass will not bend but, at an angle, the light is bent to a degree proportional to the angle of inclination.
