Charles Cléophas Person (1801-1884), French physician, transformed into researcher of thermodynamic properties such as latent heats of fusion, vaporization, and dilution, the specific heat of pure compounds and saline solutions, thermometry, neural physiology, etc. Among his achievements we can mention a procedure for improving the lecture of thermometers, a galvanometer for detecting weak instantaneous currents, and an adiabatic calorimeter.
