    From Dust Figures to the Kinetic Theory of Gases: August Kundt and the Changing Nature of Experimental Physics in the 1860s and 1870s. [REVIEW]David Cahan - 1990 - Annals of Science 47 (2):151-172.

In so doing, the essay seeks to show how Kundt came to revise the vision of experimental physics that he had learned from his teacher Heinrich Gustav (...)

    Helmholtz in Gilded-Age America: The International Electrical Congress of 1893 and the Relations of Science and Technology.David Cahan - 2010 - Annals of Science 67 (1):1-38.
    This essay recounts Hermann von Helmholtz's trip to represent Germany at the International Electrical Congress in Chicago in 1893 as well as his reception by various members of the American scientific, technological, and cultural elite in several other American cities. In doing so, it seeks to portray something of the vitality of the youthful and increasingly important American scientific community; of the strong relationship between American and German scientists, including how Helmholtz used and was used by them and various other (...)
