French engineer and industrialist who worked primarily in improving induction motors and alternators. He also invented an improved vacuum pump and worked in the area of refrigeration.
The 1 December 1880 French publication "La Lumière électrique", published an article by Leblanc entitled "Etude sur la transmission électrique des impressions lumineuses". In this article Leblanc outlined five functions required for a television system: a transducer to convert light into electricity, a scanner to break up a picture into its constituent parts, a method of synchronising the receiver and the transmitter, a means of converting electrical signals back into light, and a screen for viewing the image.
He died on 27 October 1923, aged 66.
