Dissertation: Onderzoek der trillende platte vliezen

Highest degree: doctor

Fields of interest:
Biography:
Kapteyn was born in Barneveld, and grew up in a boarding school run by his parents, Gerrit Jacobus Kapteyn and the former Elisabeth Cornelia Koopmans. He was the ninth of fifteen children and family life was minimal because of his parents' running of the school. Whereas Kapteyn's older brother, Albertus Philippus (1848-1927) was judged by his father not to be suited for a higher education and was sent to a trade school (he became a well-known engineer, who ran Westinghouse Airbrake Europe), Jacobus showed his talents early and went to the University of Utrecht in 1868, at the age of 17. He took his Ph.D. in 1875 with a dissertation on Onderzoek der trillende platte vliezen (A Study of Vibrating Flat Membranes).
Kapteyn's first position was as observer at the Leiden Observatory (which because of Kaiser had become one of the foremost institutions for position measurements), but in 1877 he accepted the appointment to the new chair of astronomy at the university of Groningen. Had he remained at Leiden, he would undoubtedly have made his career as an observer. At Groningen, however, this was not an option: his requests for a well-equipped observatory fell on deaf ears because of opposition from the existing observatories at Leiden and Utrecht. Instead, he entered an arrangement with David Gill at the Cape Observatory: in Groningen, Kapteyn would measure the plates made by Gill's staff in their photographic Durchmusterung of the southern skies. For this work, Kapteyn designed precision instruments and organized an astronomical laboratory. The work began in 1885 and the positions of 450,000 southern stars thus measured appeared in three volumes between 1896 and 1900.
But stellar positions and brightnesses were only a means to an end. Like many other astronomers of his day, Kapteyn was interested in the distribution of stars and the structure of the Milky Way. By 1906, he had organized the international cooperative 'Plan of Selected Areas', in which the work of cataloguing the stars in 206 sample areas was divided among 30 observatories, a work that was not finished until almost half a century after Kapteyn's death. The information obtained was: apparent brightness, proper motion, radial motion, color, etc. Since the correlation of apparent brightness with distance had already been proven erroneous by William Herschel toward the end of his life, Kapteyn took a statistical approach: although the correlation was false for individual stars, it should apply for representative groupings of stars. By about 1920, as Kapteyn's career neared its end, enough information was becoming available to reveal a disk-like structure of the Milky Way, about six times as wide as thick, with the Sun near the center. Kapteyn was aware of the problem of extinction absorption of starlight by interstellar matter, but all his efforts to measure this were negative. The 'Kapteyn Universe' was therefore altered when absorption was demonstrated: its size had to be increased (although not as much as Harlow Shapley advocated) and the position of the Sun was determined, as argued by Shapley, to be eccentric. Kapteyn's program, however, retained its validity and was pursued by his successors. His study also showed that there were preferred motions of stars in the solar neighborhood, which showed relative motions of two groups of stars: this was important evidence that the Milky Way had a spiral structure and that our Sun was in one of the spiral arms.

After World War I, Kapteyn was one of a handful of scientists (see also Lorentz) who opposed the exclusion of German and Austrian scientists from international bodies and cooperative research, a practice not stopped until after his death. Kapteyn retired in 1921

Scientific instrument maker from Dantzig, Poland. Fahrenheit spent a large part of his life in the Dutch Republic. He made mainly thermometers, before 1716 he also made telescopes. Between 1702 and 1706 Fahrenheit was an apprentice in Amsterdam. In 1708, he went to Denmark and learned from Ole Romer in Copenhagen how to make thermometers. In 1717 he returned to Amsterdam, where he settled in the Leidsestraat, at the copper smith Roemer. Between 1717 and 1730 he taught physics and chemistry for a Group of Mennonite enthusiasts. He made thermometers, barometers, aerometers, perpetuum mobiles, eye models, pycnometers, solar microscopes, reflecting telescopes and mercury clocks. Fahrenheit is best known for for developing a temperature scale, named after him. In 1724 he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of London.

Dissertation: Onderzoekingen over de natuur der lichenen

Highest degree: doctor

Fields of interest:
Biography:
Treub was the son of the local burgomaster. After attending the municipal HBS in Leiden, he started his studies in biology at the university of Leiden in 1869. His most important teachers were the botanist W.F.R. Suringar and the zoologist E. Selenka. Treub received his Ph.D. in 1873 on a dissertation on the true nature of lichens (Onderzoekingen over de natuur der lichenen [Leiden: Van der Hoek, 1873]), an elaboration of an earlier gold medal winning study. From 1874 to 1880, Treub was botanical assistant to Suringar. The high quality of his studies on plant cytology, histology, nucleus division, and embryology brought him membership of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1879.
In 1880 Treub was appointed director of 's Lands Plantentuin (Botanical Garden) in Buitenzorg on Java in the Dutch East Indies (now Kebun Raya at Bogor, Indonesia). Within a year, he had rearranged the curriculum of the attached agricultural school. He went on to revitalize the gardens, herbaria, library, and scientific research. Treub insisted that applied agricultural research should always be based on pure scientific research. In 1883 he founded a new periodical, Mededeelingen, to publish the results of the researches carried on at the gardens. In order to accommodate the increasing numbers of foreign scientists visiting the gardens, Treub opened a new laboratory in 1885. Using various means of publication such as articles in a popular Dutch literary journal, and the newly founded journals Bulletin du jardin botanique de Buitenzorg and Teysmannia (both beginning in 1894), he tried to make the authorities and the general public aware of the rich economical potentials of the colony.
On medical leave in the Netherlands in 1887. Treub established the Buitenzorg Fund, which provided grants for botanists to work in Java. From that time onward, new laboratories were established and a programme was begun under Treub's guidance for the foundation of various agricultural research stations all over the colony. In 1890 he founded the Maatschappij ter Bevordering van het Natuurkundig Onderzoek der Nederlandsche Koloniën (Society for the promotion of natural scientific research in the Dutch colonies, commonly known as the `Treub Maatschappij'). Treub acquired a forest preserve next to the mountain garden in Tjibodas (now Cibodas) where, in 1891, a new field laboratory was founded.
Treub's own research dealt with various plant diseases, rice crops, the embryology and biohistory of club ferns, the fertilization of Casuarina, the embryology of Ficus and Elatostema, the plant sociology of the rain forest, and floras of Buitenzorg and of the recolonized island Krakatoa. Treub's merits were recognized by the colonial authorities who, in 1898, gave him the honourary title of professor although there was as yet no university in the Dutch East Indies. In 1905 Treub married Antoinette Petronella Vogel. The marriage remained childless. In that same year a Department of Agriculture was founded of which Treub became the first director.
In 1909 Treub retired for health reasons. He settled in Southern France where he died of persistent malaria in St. Raphael on 3 October 1910.

Biography:
Leeuwenhoek was originally trained as a cloth merchant and a surveyor. He worked in various positions for the city of Delft: Usher to the Aldermen (1660), Surveyor to the Court of Holland (1669), Chief Warden (1677), Wine Gauger and or Inspector of Weights and Measures (1679). From around 1673 he made microscopes according to the design of Johannes Hudde. Leeuwenhoek grinded some 550 lenses, the quality of which was not surpassed until the nineteenth century. He communicated his observations by letters to other scholars, mostly to the Royal Society. He made his most important discovery in 1674: the true nature of micro-organisms.

Biography:
Dollond was the son of a Huguenot refugee, a silk-weaver at Spitalfields, London, where he was born. He followed his father's trade, but found time to acquire a knowledge of Latin, Greek, mathematics, physics, anatomy and other subjects. In 1752 he abandoned silk-weaving and joined his eldest son, Peter Dollond, who in 1750 had started in business as a maker of optical instruments. His reputation grew rapidly, and in 1761 he was appointed optician to the king. In 1758 he published an "Account of some experiments concerning the different refrangibility of light", describing the experiments that led him to the achievement with which his name is specially associated, the discovery of a means of constructing achromatic lenses by the combination of crown and flint glasses, which reduces chromatic aberration (color defects). Leonhard Euler in 1747 had suggested that achromatism might be obtained by the combination of glass and water lenses. Relying on statements made by Sir Isaac Newton, Dollond disputed this possibility, but subsequently, after the Swedish physicist, Samuel Klingenstierna, had pointed out that Newton's law of dispersion did not harmonize with certain observed facts, he began experiments to settle the question. Early in 1757 he succeeded in producing refraction without colour by the aid of glass and water lenses, and a few months later he made a successful attempt to get the same result by a combination of glasses of different qualities. For this achievement the Royal Society awarded him the Copley Medal in 1758, and three years later elected him one of its fellows. Dollond also published two papers on apparatus for measuring small angles. John Dollond was the first person to patent the achromatic doublet. However, it is well known that he was not the first to make achromatic lenses. Optician George Bass, following the instructions of Chester Moore Hall, made and sold such lenses as early as 1733. In the late 1750s, Bass told Dollond about Hall's design, Dollond saw the potential and was able to reproduce them. Dollond appears to have known of the prior work and refrained from enforcing his patent. After his death, his son, Peter, did take action to enforce the patent. A number of his competitors, including Bass, Benjamin Martin, Robert Rew and Jesse Ramsden, took action. Dollond's patent was upheld, as the court found that the patent was valid due to Dollond's exploitation of the invention while prior inventors did not. Several of the opticians were ruined by the expense of the legal proceedings and closed their shops as a result. William Eastland, John and Jonathan Cuthbertson and James Champneys subsequently moved to The Netherlands. The patent remained valid until it expired in 1772. Following the expiry of the patent, the price of achromatic doublets in England dropped in half. [Wikipedia]
