Frederik Zernike (Amsterdam, July 16, 1888 – Amersfoort, March 10, 1966) was a Dutch physicist and winner of the Nobel prize for physics in 1953 for his invention of the phase contrast microscope, an instrument that permits the study of internal cell structure without the need to stain and thus kill the cells.
Zernike was the son of Carl Frederick August Zernike and Antje Dieperink, both of whom were teachers of mathematics; Zernike shared his passion for physics with his father.
Zernike's orthogonal circle polynomials provided the optics community with a crystal-clear tool to separate the various aberrations and to easily solve the long-standing problem of the optimum 'balancing' of the various aberrations of an optical instrument.

 Frits Zernike Summary
Frits Zernike was born on July 16, 1888, in Amsterdam, the son of two mathematicians, Carl Frederick August Zernike and Antje Dieperink Zernike.
Zernike published these findings in 1934, and by 1935 he was applying these same principles to microscopes, which he knew had optical problems that were similar to telescopes.

 Frits Zernike - Biography
Frits Zernike was born in Amsterdam, 16th July 1888, as the second son in a family of six children.
Frits inherited his passion for physics from his father; as a boy he already possessed an arsenal of pots, crucibles, tubes, which he scraped together with his own pocket money, or received as gifts from understanding manufacturers.
Zernike's achievements were recognized by the Royal Microscopical Society; he was also awarded the Rumford Medal of the Royal Society (London) and an honorary doctorate in Medicine from the University of Amsterdam.
