If you have opened the Google homepage today, you probably came across the unique Google Doodle of an Indian Scientist Immersed in his work . In a unique doodle, the search giant Google has paid tribute to an Indian physicist and mathematician, Satyendra Nath Bose, for his extraordinary contribution to the field of science. The Google Doodle for June 4 marks the Bose-Einstein Condensate. On this day, in the year 1924, he delivered his quantum formulations to Albert Einstein and Einstein instantly recognised Bose’s formulations as a key quantum mechanics breakthrough. Today’s doodle depicts a cartoonish representation of Bose who is seen conducting some sort of experiment.
The importance of the discovery was quickly realised by Einstein, who applied Bose’s formula to a wide spectrum of events. Later, Bose went on to become the president of a number of scientific organisations, which include the Indian Physical Society, the National Institute of Science, the Indian Science Congress, as well as the Indian Statistical Institute. He also served as an adviser to the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research. Any particle that currently corresponds to Bose’s statistics is referred to be a boson in his remembrance. His work has resulted in several scientific advances, including the discovery of the ‘particle accelerator and the God particle’.
One day while teaching postgraduate students Planck’s radiation formula, he questioned the way particles were counted. Hen then began experimenting with his own theories. Bose documented his findings in a report called Planck’s Law and the Hypothesis of Light Quanta, and sent it to a prominent science journal called The Philosophical Magazine.The Indian government awarded him the second highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhushan, for his tremendous contribution in to physics. He was also appointed as National Professor Notably, its the highest honor in India for scholars.
