Maurice (1857) Leblanc


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.
