Kundt is best known for inventing an apparatus, the Kundt tube, that allows the determination of the velocity of sound in different gases. Quincke worked on capillary phenomena and the reflection of light. Kohlrausch was an important experimental physicist best known for his work on electrolyte conductivity. Clausius is best known for the concept of entropy, which he named. Portrait taken on the 300th anniversary of the re-establishment of the University of Wurzburg, Germany.
