I don't have time to do a proper post in honour of Ada Lovelace Day (celebrating female scientists) but I wanted to link to the Wikipedia article about her.

Inventor of the colour gauge for measuring film thicknesses, of the Langmuir-Blodgett film (and the trough to deposit them), and of invisible glass.

Oh, and see here for Agnes Pockels' contribution. Irving Langmuir got a Nobel Prize for building on the work she began as an independent scientist.
