Poisson spot, Physics

Poisson spot (S.D. Poisson)

Originally Poisson predicted the existence of such spot, and utilized the prediction to revel how the wave theory of light have to be in error to generate such a counterintuitive result. Subsequent observation of Arago spot gave a decisive confirmation of the wave nature of light.
