S N Bose

S N Bose

Scientist of eminence in mathematics and theoretical physics

Have you heard the terms ‘Higgs boson’ and the ‘Bose–Einstein condensate’? It is a matter of pride for every Indian that these names are associated with the famous Indian scientist Satyendra Nath Bose. Prof. S. N. Bose was an expert in the field of mathematics and theoretical physics. Prof. Bose’s research spanned across Einstein’s theory of relativity and Planck’s quantum  radiation law. His collaboration with Albert Einstein led to path breaking outcomes like ‘Bose-Einstein Statistics’ or ‘Bose Statistics’, which helped in development of a branch of modern physics called ‘quantum statistics’.

Prof. Bose is also famous for his work on X-Ray crystallography and had established his own X-Ray crystallography laboratory. In recognition of Prof. Bose’s contributions to the field of general relativity, he was awarded the Padma Vibhushan. He also became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1958, and was appointed as a National Professor in 1959. As a token of appreciation for his
great contributions, the Indian Government established the S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences in Kolkata in 1986. 

Known for Higgs-Boson and the Bose-Einstein Statistics
