The world-famous Indian mathematician and physicist Satyendra Nath Bose is being honoured by Google with a one-of-a-kind Doodle on Saturday. This is in recognition of the tremendous contributions he made to the fields of mathematics and physics.
On this day in 1924, Satyendra Nath Bose, who is best known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s, sent his quantum formulations to the German scientist Albert Einstein, who acknowledged it as a significant discovery in quantum mechanics. Bose is most recognised for his early 1920s work on quantum mechanics.
It is stated that Albert Einstein served as Bose’s mentor throughout his career.
Born In the year 1894, when Bose was living in Kolkata, he had a wide variety of interests in many different subjects, including as physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, mineralogy, philosophy, arts, literature, and music.
Following his time at Hindu School in Calcutta, Bose went on to study at Presidency College, where he excelled academically and was awarded the best grades.
From 1916 to 1921, Bose worked as a lecturer in the University of Calcutta’s physics department. He was inspired to become a physicist by both the historian Prafulla Chandra Ray and the scientist Jagadish Chandra Bose.
1924 was the year when Bose published a paper in which he derived Planck’s law of quantum radiation without making any reference to classical physics.
In 1954, Bose was presented with India’s Padma Vibhushan award, which is the country’s second highest civilian honour.
