In: Science. Title: Microscope Introduction: Microscopes are an instrument used to see objects that are too small for the naked eye. This new technology bought a whole new discovery to our world back in the early s. The first microscope was developed by Hans Janssen and Zacharias Janssen between and Around , Anton Van Leeuwenhoek made a more powerful microscope. In this present time, there is many different microscopes, which can be classified into several different classes.
The causes of many of the illnesses that have plagued the human race have been found at the microscopic level. The microscope, one of the greatest human inventions, has helped find causes, and thereby treatments, for many of these illnesses. Moreover, the microscope can assist in solving crimes, as well as see the cells that make humans who they are. The origins of the microscope can be traced back to the Roman invention of glass in the first century A. When the Romans experimented with different. Relevance: Microscopes are very important instruments that are used mainly in the fields of Science. The invention of the microscope allowed for the discovery of microorganisms, cells, elements of animals, fungi and plants that could not be seen by the naked eye.
When looking at paper under a microscope, it's a straightforward experiment. Essentially, paper consists of a network of plant fibers that have been laid down to form a flat sheet. Different types of trees e.
A Foldscope is an optical microscope that can be assembled from simple components, including a sheet of paper and a lens. It is part of the " frugal science " movement which aims to make cheap and easy tools available for scientific use in the developing world. The basic principle of using a small spherical lens held close to the eye dates back to Antonie van Leeuwenhoek , who was the first to see single-celled organisms using such a lens held in a device of his own design. The Foldscope was developed by a team led by Manu Prakash, an assistant professor of bioengineering at the Stanford School of Medicine.
