German physicist remembered for inventing the Schering Bridge, which is an AC bridge circuit used to measure capacitance and the dissipation factor of capacitors.

He studied physics at the University of Göttingen, and earned his doctorate in 1904. Beginning in 1905 he was a scientific assistant at the Physics and Technology Institute in Berlin Charlottenburg; today known as the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB). His work at PTB primarily dealt with high voltage/high current research and development, and in 1914 he developed a measurement methodology for examining current transformers. In 1919 he attained the title of professor at PTB.

Beginning in 1927, Schering was a professor of electrical engineering and high voltage technology at the Technical University of Hanover (today known as the Leibniz University of Hanover). Today, the Schering Institute at Leibniz University is named in his honour.

He died on 10 April 1959 in Hanover, aged 78.
