Peter Desaga was a German instrument maker at the University of Heidelberg who worked with Robert Bunsen. In 1855, Desaga perfected an earlier design of the laboratory burner by Michael Faraday into the Bunsen burner.
Neither Desaga nor Bunsen patented the design, and many imitations were marketed.
Peter Desaga's son, Carl Desaga, founded C. Desaga.
