Microscope Timeline 1590 Hans Janssen and his son made one of the first compound microscopes 1660 Robert Hooke improved the microscope by adding an oil lamp 1683 Anton Leeuwenhoek made a simple microscope that could magnify an object 266 times. He was the first to see many one celled organisms 1886 The modern light compound microscope was invented 1981 The STM was invented. It can magnify an object 1,000,000 times
Uses a beam of electrons to form an image. Is much clearer than a compound microscope
