Many schoolchildren are taught how to quickly and easily create a Mobius strip: Take a strip of paper, twist it once and join up the ends. This unique one-sided, three-dimensional shape rarely appears in nature, but a new study in the journal Science has found that it does appear in the polarization of an extremely short beam of laser light.

A telescope, designed to aid the observation of remote objects, collects some form of electromagnetic radiation (such as visible light). The Netherlands developed the first known practical telescope in the 17th century. The term "telescope" was termed in order to describe Galileo's instruments in 1611. However, Galileo was not the inventor of the telescope. It was Hans Lippershey, Zacharias Janssen, and Jacob Metius who are credited with the creation of the telescope. In 1668, Isaac Newton...
Bifocals are eyeglasses, commonly prescribed for presbyopia, with two distinct optical powers. Although there are arguments against him, Benjamin Franklin is generally credited with the invention of bifocals. After a correspondence between George Whatley and John Fenno it was thought that Franklin possibly invented the bifocals fifty years earlier than previously thought. Many inventions are worked on independently by many people and bifocals may have been the same, however, Franklin was...
A magnifying glass is a convex lens, usually mounted in a frame with a handle, which is used to produce a magnified image of an object. The glass works by creating a magnified virtual image of an object behind the lens. However, the distance between the lens and the object must be shorter than the focal length for the glass to work. If the distance is not correct then the image will appear small and inverted. Many magnifying glasses are mounted on a stand to insure the proper distance...
