Poggendorff, Johann C. (1796 - 1877)

Dt. Physiker

In 1820 Poggendorff built the first measurable current measurement (galvanometer) and in 1826 he invented with the collaboration of Gauß how to read the mirrow of this device. In 1841, he developed the Poggendorff compensation circuit for measuring electrical potential, current and resistor exactly and he determinated the electromechanical force. He built an electrostatic engine that was similar to Holtz's electrostatic engine. Besides he invented a convenient clemping screw. In 1850 he described the Poggendorff deception.
