Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This category lists makers of scientific instruments, with particular attention to those individuals who contributed to historical developments in instrument making.

For example, the first person to invent a cloud chamber could be listed here, but a corporation that makes cloud chamber kits in bulk for schools should not. Ditto corporations that specialize in modern scientific equipment. Bill Hewlett or David Packard might qualify for a specific instrument or instruments, but the Hewlett-Packard Company would not. Please find or create another category for those corporations. For example, see Category:Instrument-making corporations, which may apply to your needs.
