In this video I would like to talk about the history of microscopes.During the 1590s, the two spectacle-makers, Hans and Zacharias Jansen began experimenting. They put lenses in a tube and made a very important discovery. They discovered that objects near the end of the tube appeared to be enlarged, much larger than any simple magnifying glass could achieve alone.
In the 1660’s Robert Hooke began looking at all kinds of objects with his microscope.
He put all of his drawings in a book called Micrographia
He is credited with naming cells but also studied items like fleas under his microscope.
Anton van Leeuwenhoek was very good at grinding and polishing lenses.
These lenses led to the building of his microscope which was considered the first practical microscope.
In 1674 Anton Van Leeuwenhoek was the first to see and describe bacteria.
Another huge advance in microscopes didn’t occur until German physicist Ernst Ruska and the electrical engineer Max Knoll constructed the prototype electron microscope in 1931, capable of four-hundred-power magnification.
Electron microscopes uses accelerated electrons in order to view objects.
Modern electron microscopes can magnify objects up to 10 million times
