Siegfried Czapski (28 May 1861 – 29 June 1907) was a German physicist and optician.


Czapski succeeded Ernst Abbe as the head of Carl Zeiss in Jena in 1903.

A street in Jena, near the Carl Zeiss works, is named after him: Siegfried-Czapski-Straße, a few blocks off Zeiss Promenade.


His most important publication was Theorie der optischen Instrumente, nach Abbe (Breslau: Trewendt, 1893).
