Abstract : Bertram Scharf, a prominent researcher in psychoacoustics, died on 30 November 2011. This presentation is a tribute which the Groupe Perception Sonore of the SFA wishes to pay to him. Since 1978, Professor Scharf divided his time between the USA and France. He was a professor in psychology at the Northeastern university. In France, he was a visiting scientist until the mid-ninety in the "Laboratoire de Mécanique et d'Acoustique" in Marseille and collaborated with the University of Marseille (Faculté de Médecine) until now. The major contributions of Professor Scharf to the field of psychoacoustics concern the perception of intensity. His major works focused on loudness, loudness adaptation and detection. He was among the first who studied, during the nineties, the auditory efferent system using psychoacoustical paradigms. In this presentation, an overview of professor Scharf's work will be done.
