A microscopy is a tool that produces enhanced images of small objects, allowing the viewer to see the smallest structures in the right amount of detail for inspection and analysis. Although optical microscopy is the subject of this article, images can be magnified and captured using direct or digital imaging or a combination of these techniques, as well as many waveforms, including acoustic, X-ray, or electron beams. Microscopes can provide dynamic images (like conventional optical instruments) or static images (like conventional scanning electron microscopes).

History of compound microscopy

Compound optical microscopy originated in China, not the Netherlands, England, or France, just as the Greeks had a fully functional radiation heating system two thousand years before they were introduced to the United States. Given China’s current capabilities to provide compound light microscopes, perhaps that’s appropriate!

According to ancient Chinese texts, the Chinese viewed improved models through the lens at the end of the water-filled tube, with varying degrees of magnification depending on how much they wanted to achieve. Smart, effective, and repeatable at home today. It should be noted that the Zhou Fu dynasty occurred about 4,000 years before the birth of the “father of modern microscopy”.

Amazingly, this ancient Chinese has been made 150 times higher than the current standard or 100 Move. How he developed the city car that hit Mach 2. If they made such a car, no mention was found. Again, there are no known references to this compound microscope until we go back to the Greeks.


After glasses, within a few years in Tuscany, Italy, two men claimed to have independently invented glasses. Proof? Tombstone! First, Salvino d’Armamento Degli Amati, who died in Florence in 1284, claimed to keep the process secret. Another, Alessandro Della Spina, died in 1317 and claimed to have discovered the trial from him. Pisa and Florence are some distance away. Join? It’s up to you.

In any case, the local monk Girodina da Rivalta, in a sermon from 1306, enthusiastically praised the spectacle as a great invention and used it for almost 20 years in the process. Finally, in 1289, another native of the Popozo family complained, “I am so weak with age that I cannot read or write without the spectacles called spectacles.”


Meanwhile, the first-generation telescopes seem to have used lenses. Roger Bacon of the 13th century English discussed at length. Both glasses and microscopes are related to microscopes because they detect the more complex use of lenses, which are the basic optical component of any microscope.

Then, just 200 to 300 years later, we find extensive references and clear evidence from telescopes and microscopes. The Renaissance arrived, and with it the flourishing of the arts and sciences. More importantly, with the invention of printed minerals, ideas and developments can spread easily and quickly. As a result, Thomas Diggus’s work on telescopes in England in the mid-16th century and his patent application for the telescope were transferred to others, including such geniuses as Galileo.

Galileo Telescope Galileo immediately began to use the lens. He soon developed advanced telescopes with focusing devices and went on to conquer the stars. However, tribute must be paid to Sir Isaac Newton, who invented the reflecting telescope in England.
