Answer:

Fraunhofer invented the spectroscope, and discovered 574 dark lines appearing in the solar spectrum. These were later shown to be atomic absorption lines, as explained by Kirchhoff and Bunsen in 1859. These lines are still called Fraunhofer lines in his honour.

    Fraunhofer lines named after Joseph von Fraunhofer.The device in pic2 is spectroscope.


  9. The Fraunhofer lines are a set of spectral lines named for the German physicist Joseph von Fraunhofer (1787–1826). The pic shows Fraunhofer demonstrating his spectrometer in Munich.

    Fraunhofer lines – dark lines in the sun’s spectrum that were later found to be caused by absorption of those wavelengths by elements in the sun’s (and earth’s) atmosphere.
