Physicists from India

 

    • CV Raman – (studied light scattering and discovered the Raman effect)
    • JC Bose – (pioneered the investigation of radio and microwave optics)
    • SN Bose –English: Satyendra Nath Bose in Paris 1925

      (worked out statistical method of handling bosons)

    • MN Saha – (best known for his development of the Saha equation, used to describe chemical and physical conditions in stars.)
    • HJ Bhabha (initiated nuclear research programs in India; carried out experiments in cosmic rays; calculated cross section for elastic electron-positron scattering)
    • Subramanyan Chandrasekhar:-Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar in his later years

      (won the 1983 Nobel Prize for Physics for key discoveries that led to the currently accepted theory on the later evolutionary stages of massive stars. The Chandrasekhar limit is named after him.)
