Today’s Google Doodle is a tribute to the great Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose who discovered quantum mechanics in the early 1920. Later on 4 June 1924, Bose sent his quantum formulations to the German scientist Albert Einstein who recognized quantum mechanics as a significant discovery in the field of physics and mathematics.
• Google Doodle celebrates the 98th anniversary of quantum mechanics
• It is a tribute to Satyendra Nath Bose who discovered quantum mechanics
• Bose made the discovery in 1920 and sent it to Einstein in 1924
• Einstein recognized the discovery of quantum mechanics as a big leap in science
Satyendra Nath Bose In The Pages Of History
Born In 1894 in Kolkata, Bose was a meritorious student throughout his academic career. He received his early education in Hindu School in Calcutta and went to Presidency College for higher studies. And he received the highest marks in each institution. As a student, Bose developed an interest in varied fields including physics, chemistry, biology, mineralogy, mathematics, philosophy, arts, literature, and music. After completing his studies, Bose even worked as a lecturer in the physics department of the University of Calcutta from 1916 to 1921.
Research Work Of Satyendra Nath Bose
Bose was deeply inspired by the life and works of the physicist Jagadish Chandra Bose and historian Prafulla Chandra Ray. Also, he took Albert Einstein as his Mentor. In the early 1920s, he discovered the theory of quantum mechanics. But he didn’t stop here as he sent quantum mechanics theory to Einstein for review in 1924. And to his surprise, the German scientist recognized his theory as a great achievement. The same year, he wrote a paper deriving Planck’s quantum radiation law. The biggest thing about the paper was, that it had any reference to classical physics.
In 1954, Bose was awarded the second-highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhushan for his contribution to the field of physics and mathematics.
