Joseph Antoine Plateau | Who Is He ?? (Ferdinand )

Hi everyone.👋

 Lately, Google has shared a weird image on its logo, referring to a special event:
 actually, it is about a famous Belgium scientist.

Well, in this article, we will learn more about him. 

Joseph Antoine Ferdinand Plateau is a  Belgian scientist, Born on   October 14, 1801, Brussels, Belgium and died on September 15, 1883, Ghent, Belgium.

He was specialized in mathematics and physics, an academic and a professor. 

 He was one in all the primary folks to demonstrate the illusion of a moving image.

To save time watch this Instagram videos, explaining how moving images of Joseph Antoine work

 To do this, he used counterrotating disks with continuance drew pictures in tiny increments of motion on one and frequently spaced slits within the alternative.

He was a member of the Royal Society, the Prussian Academy of Sciences, and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Positions and bodies

  •  Managed the University of Ghent.

This is a short introduction for this university to know it better :

University of Ghent (Dutch: Universiteit Gent) is a state university in the Flemish Region of Ghent, Belgium.

The University was founded by Wilhelm I in 1817 and was officially opened on 9 October 1817. The first rector of the university was Van Rotterdam. It has more than 28,000 students, about 1,100 from the EU and about 1,000 from other countries outside the EU. 

The University has 

  • 11 faculties 
  • More than 6400 employees. 
  •  About 1700 professors.
  •  More than 1600 researchers.

His biography

Public education continued his studies at the Royal Athénée in Brussels. In 1822 he entered the University of Liege and graduated in Physics and Mathematics in 1829. He was appointed Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Ghent in 1835.

Known for his research on the retention of the retina, Finakistkop invented in 1832 and drew rules that would serve as the basis for the invention of cinema. This "scientific game" allows the synthesis of periodic motion from a series of drawings arranged on a cracked disk. Some animations for these discs were designed by Belgian painter Jean-Baptiste Madou. 
In 1836, he introduced blood microscopy, which allows the reconstitution of a still image by overlapping two moving images, which he describes as "an entirely new type of anamorphic.

His experiments on retinal stability, in particular, are supposed to be the cause of his loss of sight. In the summer of 1829, he forced himself to fix the sun with the naked eye within 25 seconds to analyze the physical consequences. It burned the retina and did not see until several days later, and became blind. Permanently after fourteen years in 1843, it is likely that his condition was caused by conventional uveitis. He also studies the phenomena of capillary and surface tension, drawing from his observations on plateau soap films that apply to minimal surfaces.

Since February 2009, his room bears his name at the Brussels Film Museum.
