Can you answer the fourth question on our Carl Zeiss Quiz?

Binoculars, movie and camera lenses from ZEISS are one of the most powerful products of their type in the world. In 1935, R&D at ZEISS developed a process for applying a transparent coating to glass that reduces reflections. This coating increases the transmission of optical surfaces. Who invented this interference-based coating?

Ernst Abbe researched the formula named after him in Carl Zeiss's workshops. This formula describes the resolution limit of microscopes and enabled the construction of microscopes without the time consuming trial and error method. What is the exact formula famously developed by Ernst Abbe?

200 Years of Carl Zeiss – Theory and Practice

Carl Zeiss's dedication to quality was the foundation for his work. He proudly posed for a photograph next to a horseshoe stand, whose shape became a defining design feature of the larger #ZEISS microscopes in the years that followed. One particular feature of this model was the cylindrical diaphragms used to control the illumination. These were integrated from the side using a slide mechanism, preventing the rotating mirrors from being shifted inadvertently when changing the diaphragm. #entrepreneur

200 Year of Carl Zeiss – Everyday Working Life in the 19th Century

The 19th century was shaped by industrialization, telecommunications, mechanization and scientification. Zeiss's ideas about social reform are extraordinary in any period: he started a company health insurance plan which offered free treatment, the reimbursement of medication fees as well as financial support in the event of an inability to work.

CT scans are well-known in medical diagnosis but they can also be of great help elsewhere – such turned out to be the case with a suspicious art purchase.

200 Year of Carl Zeiss – Optics Based on Calculations

Innumerable measurements, optical experiments and comparisons with all the microscopes on the market – all this enabled Abbe to continuously check his hypotheses and ultimately discover the formula which enables the production of microscopes based on calculations. Zeiss had always believed in his idea and now his dream had come true. #ZEISS #business

200 Years of Carl Zeiss – Trust and Responsibility

Involving skilled workers was extremely important to Zeiss, and he appreciated the importance of quality training and a decent wage. Social protection for his employees, regular company celebrations and time off for personal reasons made the company #ZEISS an attractive employer that was way ahead of its time. #entrepreneur

Today we're celebrating the 200th birthday of our company founder Carl Zeiss, and we're celebrating together with players from the city of Jena, the #ZEISS sites in Germany and abroad, and partners from science, industry and society. If Carl Zeiss could travel through time, and see his company as it is today, he would certainly see a lot of himself in it. Follow the #spiritofcarl

Round two in our 200 Years of #CarlZeissQuiz: do you know the answer today's question?

Quality and innovation are always the driving force behind the development of new products – just like during the lifetime of company founder Carl Zeiss. ZEISS developed the first slit lamp by collaborating with the Swedish ophthalmologist Allvar Gullstrand. This development marked the beginning of medical technology at ZEISS. Nowadays, slit lamps are standard tools at every ophthalmologist's practice.
In what year was the slit lamp first introduced in ophthalmology?
