Caption: Solar furnace. Historical artwork of a solar furnace designed by the British metallurgist Henry Bessemer (1813-1898). The furnace focused the heat of the Sun using lenses (upper left). Solar furnaces allow experiments to be carried out without contaminating samples with the products of combustion.
