Google has created a doodle in honour of the legendary Indian scientist Satyendra Nath Bose. His legacy is largely unknown to today’s generation. However, let us point out that CERN (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire) has been looking for the genesis of the cosmos in the world’s largest lab for a long time, based on the Higgs-boson theory. Finally, the theory of the Higgs boson was solved in 2012 by CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. It is Satyendra Nath Bose who actually figured out about Bosons which later made the breakthrough to this discovery.
Satyendra Nath Bose Early Life
Satyendra Nath Bose was born in Calcutta on January 1, 1894. He was the eldest of seven brothers and sisters. His father used to be a railway worker. In 1913, he received his B.Sc. from the famous Presidency College. He earned MSc in 1915 and joined the Science College of the University of Calcutta as a research scholar in 1916.
The Higgs – Boson Theory
The Higgs-boson theory is named after British scientist Peter Higgs, who called the Higgs-boson boson’s statics after Satyendra Nath Bose in quantum theory. The Higgs boson is a fundamental particle linked to the Higgs field, which imparts mass to other fundamental particles like electrons and quarks. When a particle encounters a force, its mass dictates how much it resists changing its speed or position.
Satyendra Nath Bose Discovery
Bose–Einstein condensate, Bose–Einstein statistics, Bose–Einstein distribution, Bose–Einstein correlations, Bose gas, Boson, Ideal Bose Equation of State, and Photon gas were all discovered by Satyendra Nath Bose. One interesting fact is that Bose received several Nobel Prize nominations (1956, 1959, 1962 and 1962) but unfortunately didn’t win any Nobel award.
He was elected to the Rajya Sabha by the Indian government after independence serving from 1952 to 1958. In 1954, he received the Padma Vibhushan award. Prior to independence, he was also elected a Fellow of the world-famous Royal Society. Purnima Sinha, Partha Ghosh, and Sivabrata Bhattacharjee were among his students.
