Paper Abstract

The Optical Industry is based on an old technology. The very first optical elements were burning glasses for starting a fire from the rays of the sun. While such elements probably never were as popular as matches in a later period, they may well have been the product of an industry and thus the basis of a business. In more modern times, the manufacture of optical components and devices has not only become big business but is also the foundation of a very large number of small businesses.
