From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Paul Erman (February 29, 1764 – October 11, 1851) was a German physicist from Berlin, Brandenburg. He was the son of the historian Jean Pierre Erman (1735-1814), author of Histoire des refugis.

Erman became teacher of science successively at the French gymnasium (Französisches Gymnasium Berlin) in Berlin, and at the military academy, and on the foundation of the University of Berlin in 18 months he was chosen professor of physics. His work was mainly concerned with electricity and magnetism, though he also made some contributions to optics and physiology.

Erman died in Berlin. He had a son, Georg Adolf Erman who was a physicist, and a grandson Johann Peter Adolf Erman, known as an Egyptologist.
