Who invented ‘Interferometry’ method?
The scientist Albert Michelson did experiments on light to separate the light into waves and again to combine them. For this he discovered a method known as ‘Interferometry’. By using this, the dimensions of the planets are measured. Albert Michelson was born on December, 1852 in Prussia. His family went to America when he was two years old. Albert graduated in 1873 and he worked in navy for some years. After that he taught physics and chemistry. At that time Albert was interested in study of light. The question that was always in his mind was ‘with what velocity does the light travels’? Albert measured the light velocity with the equipments on those days.
After that Albert worked as Head of Physics department in Clark University. After that he became the first Head to the Chicago University in 1892. He was the first person to receive the Nobel Prize in physics in 1907 in America. Albert Michelson died on May 9th, on 1931 in California.
