September 11, 2016 marked the 200th birthday of Carl Zeiss.
Today many people equate the name Zeiss with quality and think of camera lenses or binoculars. Today the Zeiss company is also involved in several other areas of business including measuring technology, lithography and precision medical equipment. As many of you who read my blog know, I am a Zeissian and work for Carl Zeiss Meditec.
Jena is home to a major university that has benefited from many collaborations over the years with the Zeiss company.
I have really enjoyed this year as many details about the life of Carl Zeiss and the early years of our company have been released in books, websites and press releases. Since I really like history it has been a great year of learning.
There is also an official YouTube video about the 200th Birthday of Carl Zeiss.
Happy Birthday Mr. Zeiss!
