About Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman
Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman is a well-known Indian physicist who specializes in studying light scattering. Although he and his student K. S. Krishnan discovered using a spectrograph, they created that light that is deflected through a transparent material change in wavelength and frequency. Later, the Raman effect or Raman scattering referred to this phenomenon, a previously unidentified kind of light scattering that they named "modified scattering." Upon discovering the principle of electrostatics in 1930, Raman became the first Asian to win a Nobel Prize in science.
In 1907: Raman passed the entrance exam for the Indian Finance Service, coming in first.
In 1919: Raman was given the titles of Honorary Professor and Honorary Secretary at IACS.
In 1932: The spin of photons was determined through his collaboration with Suri Bhagavantam.
In 1933: He left Calcutta after being appointed Director of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore.
In 1948: He approached crystal dynamics from a new perspective by studying their spectroscopic behavior.
Achievements and Awards:
• In 1912: Raman was still employed by the Indian Finance Service when he earned the Curzon Research Award.
• In 1930: The Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to him for the discovery of an effect named after him and his work on scattering of light.
• In 1954: He received the Bharat Ratna.
• He was chosen to serve as the Indian Institute of Science's first director. Prior to that, all of the directors selected for IIS were British. Therefore this represents a significant accomplishment for our nation.
• His research on the scattering of light was initially published when he was just a graduate student, which was a significant accomplishment at that time.
