Presenting: The NELSONIAN® AWARDS for 2019


This award—a golden trophy MikroMak™ prime lens—is an accolade for meritorious and innovative use of Infinity’s unique Nelsonian® lens systems: optics which are designed upon microscopical principles, many of which date back to those proposed by Edward Milles Nelson.

Called by many “the English Abbe,” Nelson established criteria—which led future scientists such as F. Zernike to develop phase contrast and other devices—by observing anomalies in Abbe’s diffraction theory, such as “the invisible image.” We now honor his memory.
