    Having looked at the Wikipedia article, it seems (which is not surprising) that it was not 'invented' but developed in a number of stages. D'Arsonval and Weston were obviously major contributors in their turn.
    I don't think it could have been a 'Dyson' style invention. That would be pretty unlikely from the way that History went at that time.
