Satyendra Nath Bose: Google pays tribute to Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose with special Google Doodle.
On this day in 1924, google created a special google doodle to celebrate Indian physicist and mathematician Satyendra Nath Bose. Satyendra Nath sent his quantum formulation to the German scientist Albert Einstein who recognized it as an important discovery in quantum mechanics. The eminent scientist Albert Einstein was also an admirer of the works of Satyendra Nath – Bose.
New Delhi, Jnn. Google honored renowned Indian mathematician and physicist Satyendra Nath Bose with a special doodle on Saturday for his contribution to physics and mathematics. Satyendra Nath, best known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s, sent his quantum formulations to the German scientist Albert Einstein, who recognized it as an important discovery in quantum mechanics on this day in 1924.
Bose is said to have made Albert Einstein his mentor.
Bose’s discovery gave direction to quantum physics
In physics, there are two types of subatomic particles – bosons and fermions. Among these, the boson is named after Satyendra Nath. In view of his contribution in the field of physics, the scientist Paul Dirac named the ‘boson particle’ after him. Bose’s discovery provided a new direction to quantum physics.
Inspired by physicist Jagadish Chandra Bose and historian Prafulla Chandra Ray, Satyendra Nath also served as a lecturer in the Physics Department of the University of Calcutta from 1916 to 1921. In 1924 Bose wrote a paper deriving Planck’s quantum radiation law without reference to classical physics. In 1954, Bose was awarded the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second highest civilian award.
Satyendra Nath was rich in extraordinary talent
Bose was a topper in studies since childhood. He was born on January 1, 1894 in Calcutta (now Kolkata). It is said about Bose that he continued to pass with the highest marks in all his examinations. After schooling, he joined the famous Presidency College in Calcutta. Passed the MSc examination in the year 1915 and then joined the same college as a professor of physics. In 1921, he started working as a Reader in the Department of Physics at the newly established Dhaka University.
