Adolf Eugen Fick (1829 –1901) was a German physiologist. He earned his doctorate in medicine at Marburg in 1851. In 1855 he introduced Fick’s Law of diffusion, which governs the diffusion of a gas across a fluid membrane. In 1870 he was the first to devise a technique for measuring cardiac output, called the Fick principle.
