Sir C.V. Raman Received Nobel Prize in 1930 | Raman Effect Brought Nobel Prize to C.V.Raman
While traveling on the ship everyone get so much of happiness by seeing vast sea. During the journey, a question was aroused in one scientist’s mind. Why the sea water appears in blue color? This thought lead for an invention of a key aspect in physics. The discovery was made by the scientist C.V.Raman, who belongs to India. This invention is famous in the name of ‘Raman Effect’ world wide. Sir C.V.Raman received Noble prize for this invention. Indian government awarded him with ‘Bharat Ratna’. Even today ‘Raman effect’ is being used in many scientific fields.
C.V.Raman was born on November 7, 1888 in Tiruchinapalli in the state of Tamil Nadu. Chandra sekhar Venkata Raman completed his school study at the age of 11. His father was working as physics lecturer in Visakhapatnam College. So C.V.Raman studied Intermediate at that place. He took gold medal in B.A, at Madras Presidency College. He passed M.A., in distinction at the age of 18. His research papers were published in science magazines, even when he was as a college student.
C.V.Raman joined as Deputy Accountant General in Government Finance department at the age 19. He continued his experiments during nights at ‘Indian Association for cultivation of science’. After some time later, he left that job and spent full time for his experiments. He made experiments on musical instruments and discovered new theories on sound system. After that he worked as physics professor for 16 years in Calcutta University. While he was returning after attending London science conference in 1921 through Ship, the beautiful sea attracted C.V.Raman. Then the question flashed in his mind that why the sea’s water is in blue color. Then he started experiments in the ship itself. When sun rays touches the water drops, then the lesser wave length of blue color in sun rays scatters, reaches to the human eyes. So the sea appears in blue color. Raman noticed and he explained that how the photon particles in light behave when they collide with atoms in molecules. He did these experiments with the instruments whose cost was 200 rupees only. He got Noble prize in 1930. Before this, he was elected as ‘Fellow of Royal Society’ and as first national professor in India. He developed science by establishing Raman Research Institute and Indian Academy of Sciences at Bangalore. Raman Effect is being used to determine the molecule constructions, understanding of chemical mixtures, for analysis of medicines. The day when Raman Effect was discovered, February 28th is celebrated as National Science Day in India.
