A miniaturizing ray or shrink ray, was any type of energy, such as a laser, that was projected from a ray gun, that was capable of shrinking matter. In most cases, a ray gun of this type would have at least two settings, one to shrink a target, and another to return it to its' normal size.
Doctor Hiram Gulliver also invented a shrink ray called a Sonic Microwave Reducer, as well as several other shrinking machines. His shrink rays were microwave-based. He used them in an attempt to solve the Earth's growing population problem. He even had a hand held version of the device, which was called a handheld minimizer.
